MINIATURE IBI FUIMUS EMBLEM FROM APOLLO 14.
Flown emblem decal, 2 x 1 inches. Laminated onto a printed card, 4½ x 3 inches.

The card features a drawing of an astronaut holding the U.S. flag and reads: "Apollo 14 Kittyhawk / Antares. Flown to the moon and back. Alan B. Shepard, Jr., Edgar D. Mitchell, Stuart A. Roosa. The third flag on the moon." The flown decal is on the right side of the card and illustrates a masked eagle over a shield with the moon and data transmission "bit bucket."
