28 DAYS IN ORBIT—CONRAD'S SKYLAB I EMBLEM.
LETTER GIVING DETAILS ON A RECORD BREAKING FLIGHT.
Flown Skylab I cloth emblem, 4 inches in diameter. Features the Skylab Space Station in orbit above the earth as our planet eclipses the sun. The emblem is display above paragraphs on a Typed Letter Signed by CHARLES CONRAD.

CHARLES CONRAD'S signed provenance letter reads in part: "I was the commander of the first manned flight to Skylab. The mission was delayed ten days in order to make plans for repairing the damage that occurred just minutes into the launch of Skylab, also known as the SL-1 mission. This patch was carried with us during the launch of the SL-2 vehicle on May 25, 1973, and flew in space for 28 days. My crew and I made the repairs during that time to enable a full duration mission. We returned to earth on June 22, 1973."
