Charles Conrad's mustard-color flight suit used during training for the first manned Skylab mission, signed on the chest in black felt tip, "My Skylab Trng Suit, Charles Conrad, Jr., Cdr. Skylab I."
The suit bears the Skylab mission patch on the right sleeve, NASA 'meatball' logo patch on the right breast, and Conrad's Velcro name patch on the left, "Charles Conrad, NASA-JSC." The Kings Point manufacturer's tag is sewn into the collar area, with a small identification tag below, "Charles Conrad, Jr." In fine condition, with some wear from use.
Conrad and his crew spent nearly a month in space while repairing the severe damage the Skylab space station suffered at launch. The mission was a success, and Conrad later received the Congressional Space Medal of Honor from President Jimmy Carter for his efforts in salvaging the critically malfunctioning station.
RARE astronaut used and certified artifact from the third man on the moon !
