CREW EMBLEM CARRIED ON APOLLO 14.
Flown Cloth Emblem, oval, 4 inches across. Features the Astronaut symbol rocketing from the Earth toward the moon. Mounted on a Typed Letter Signed by Gordon Cooper.

Gordon Cooper reflects on never flying on an Apollo lunar mission. His letter reads: “The cloth patch displayed below was carried on the flight of Apollo 14, the third manned lunar landing. Lift-off was on January 31 and the crew returned to earth on February 9, 1971. Alan Shepard and Edgar Mitchell worked for over 9 hours outside their Lunar Module during two surface explorations. Al never made it up to the rim of Cone Crater, but didn't do too bad considering he was the 'oldest' man ever to walk on the moon! / Alan Shepard was the only one of us Mercury guys to make a lunar flight and actually walk on the moon's surface. I had hoped to command an Apollo mission before his, but it just did not work out that way.”
