APOLLO I CREW EMBLEM.
Circular crew emblem, 3½ inches in diameter. Features a CSM in orbit over Earth with the moon in the distance. Mounted onto a Typed Letter Signed by Gordon Cooper.

Conrad's letter reads in part: "The Apollo 1 cloth patch displayed below was one of the very first production runs for this emblem. It was given to me by Apollo 1 mission commander Virgil I. "Gus" Grissom at the end of 1966. It came as a shock to us in the Astronaut Office as well as the entire nation and the world that he and crew members Edward White and Roger Chaffee were killed in a spacecraft fire on the launch pad just a few weeks later in January 1967 ... Gus and the Apollo 1 crew gave their lives to help the United States reach the goal of landing on the moon by the end of 1969."
