Lot 21: STS-6 FLOWN Patch and Cue Card Crew-Signed Presentation

This vintage STS-6 mission patch and cue card, labeled "Teleprinter Activation Procedure," flew on the maiden flight of Space Shuttle Challenger on April 4-9, 1983. Both pieces are attached to a collage of photos from the same mission, signed by the four crew members: Commander Paul Weitz, Pilot Karol "Bo" Bobko and Mission Specialists Story Musgrave and Donald Peterson.

Astronaut Mary Cleave served as a member of the STS-6 support crew and was given the patch by the crew upon their return to Earth. It was a NASA tradition that crews present key ground support members with a flown item from their mission.

This piece has some condition issues (see photos). It has been mounted and framed using archival methods. The final presentation measures approx. 16 x 20.25".

A certificate of authenticity signed by Astronaut Scholarship Foundation Executive Director Tammy Knowles accompanies this lot.

ASF reserves the right to disqualify the high bidder, to reject the high bid and to accept a bid from a lower bidder for any reason within their discretion, which shall be exercised in good faith.
