Star Wars Vintage Patches

February 5, 2015

star wars patches

Here’s a couple of embroidered vintage patches from my collection. The Star Wars one was a special offer to Official Fan Club members in 1981. It is based upon Ralph McQuarrie’s original design for Star Wars in 1975. It features the figure of Luke holding a lightsaber against the backdrop of Yavin. The second patch ‘Vader In Flames’ – also only available to Fan Club members at the time – is a reproduction of the actual crew patch worn by the production crew on their parkers during the Finse Norway shoot for The Empire Strikes Back in 1979. And here’s a production still of director Irvin Kirshner with Mark Hamill, sporting one of these parkers with the Vader In Flames patch prominently displayed (pic courtesy
