This version of the Gemini 6 crew patch is the original design. The “GTA” designation stands for “Gemini-Titan-Agena”, however the launch of the Agena docking target failed, so the mission objective was changed to rendezvous with Gemini 7. The hexagonal patch with the stylized “6” shape was designed by Gemini astronaut Wally Schirra. 

The STS-61E mission was cancelled after the challenger disaster, but before cancellation, only up to 200 patches were known to have been initially produced. Other replicas have been made of the STS-61E patch, however, it’s not common to find a two-piece replica of the patch. 

 

 

 

SOLD OUT

The Black Cat patch was produced by the crew of STS-13 to celebrate the unlucky number 13 in their original flight designation. At the same time the official STS-41C emblem was being designed, an underground patch with a black cat and a number “13” was also being designed and quitely circulated. It was rumored that as few as 20 original patches (but likely no more than 50) were produced for distribution amongst the crew.  The “Black Cat” artwork was designed by the late Dick Scobee.
