GORDON COOPER'S APOLLO I CREW EMBLEM.
A GIFT FROM "GUS" GRISSOM.
Cloth crew mission emblem, 3½ inches in diameter. The emblem features a CSM in orbit over Earth with the moon in the distance. Mounted on a Typed Letter Signed by GORDON COOPER.

With GORDON COOPER'S signed provenance letter which 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 near 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."
