A big thank you to all of the backers to made the second Kickstarter campaign a huge success. The See-Bassett commemorative patch will be made! The campaign raised almost twice the original funding goal so I added a stretch goal for a second patch to be made. It seems only fair to use the extra funds for more creative work and the stretch goal was funded within a few days. I let the backers and collectors vote on which patch they would like to see included.
The votes were overwhelmingly in support of a Deke Slayton Delta 7 fantasy patch to complement the Eagle One Aerospace Mercury artwork patch series. The second place votes supported a Pegasus Satellite patch.
On the heels of our successful inaugural Kickstarter campaign, Retrorocket Emblems has launched a second campaign to raise funds for a patch that commemorates Elliot See, Jr and Charles Bassett II as prime crew of Gemini IX.
Due to the success of our 2014 Kickstarter Campaign and with a very special thank you to the supporters who made that happen, Retrorocket Emblems is happy to announce the very limited availability of four new commemorative patches:
HAM the Astro Chimp Commemorative Patch
RRE has three new patches coming Q4 or Q1 2014. We plan to release all three simultaneously as part of a Kickstarter campaign which will allow you to acquire all three at a special price. We here at RRE have a desire to create patches that fill in some of those gaps in the Space Race era. We hope these three offerings do just that.
