We’re very proud of our Geek Merit Badges, and this design, the Plague Survivor, is one of our earliest additions to the line.
We added it as something of a joke/experiment. It came up during a brainstorming session and we made it to see what would happen, never expecting that it would become one of our all-time top five best-selling items. People love the plague doctor!
Fun fact: our first attempt at the plague doctor mask wasn’t a winner because it looked too much like one of the title characters from the Spy Vs. Spy comic strip.
The Plague Survivor Geek Merit Badge is available for $8 through our web store. You can also buy it as a sticker from our Redbubble store.
