A big thank you to all of the backers to made the second Kickstarter campaign a huge success. The See-Bassett commemorative patch will be made! The campaign raised almost twice the original funding goal so I added a stretch goal for a second patch to be made. It seems only fair to use the extra funds for more creative work and the stretch goal was funded within a few days. I let the backers and collectors vote on which patch they would like to see included.
The votes were overwhelmingly in support of a Deke Slayton Delta 7 fantasy patch to complement the Eagle One Aerospace Mercury artwork patch series. The second place votes supported a Pegasus Satellite patch.
Retrorocket Emblem's aim is to provide patches for missions that may not have had one, usually unmanned, but critical to the space program at large. Here are some future patch ideas that RRE is contemplating releasing.
You can read about each of the concepts with the links below:

On the heels of our successful inaugural Kickstarter campaign, Retrorocket Emblems has launched a second campaign to raise funds for a patch that commemorates Elliot See, Jr and Charles Bassett II as prime crew of Gemini IX.
Due to the success of our 2014 Kickstarter Campaign and with a very special thank you to the supporters who made that happen, Retrorocket Emblems is happy to announce the very limited availability of four new commemorative patches:
HAM the Astro Chimp Commemorative Patch
RRE has three new patches coming Q4 or Q1 2014. We plan to release all three simultaneously as part of a Kickstarter campaign which will allow you to acquire all three at a special price. We here at RRE have a desire to create patches that fill in some of those gaps in the Space Race era. We hope these three offerings do just that.
The Retrorocket Emblems is proud to announce the sale of the Apollo 4 concept patch, the first of at least three concept patches in a series.
