Atlanta Roller Derby awards this patch to their executive board (aka "Heads of Skate").  To my knowledge it's a custom patch used only for this purpose. (Let me know if it's commercially available for non-derby use in which case I'll remove it from our listings.)

This is the patch of Atlanta Roller Derby's cheer squad, the Jeerleaders.

This is the patch of Atlanta Roller Derbys' retired skaters, the LORDS -- Loyal Order of Retired Distinguished Skaters.  By league tradition this patch is only available to retired skaters.  While the patch says "Atlanta Chapter" on it, I have been unable to find any sign of chapters with other leagues.

This is a patch based on the drawins in the book of the same name. This was a limited run patch that is highly difficult to acquire.

This patch was being sold by California Mayhem Junior Roller Derby.  I do not know if they created the design or were simply reselling it.

Canuck Derby TV is a defunct Canadian derby streaming service.  Sort of a Internet television network for derby.

This is a patch from Grease, Gas, and Glory, a company specializing "rough and tumble" apparel.  The number 13 is found on many of their items.  They did specify this was specifically intended for roller derby, and the star was intended to represent the jammer star.

A number of variations of these patches exist based on age (40, 50, 60), gender (male, female, neutral), role (ref, skater), and background color (black, white).

This was sold by 2x4 Roller Derby at the 2018 WFTDA Playoffs in Spain.

Could this patch be a vendor patch of some sort?  I don't know the story behind it.

When Lutece Destroyeuses Roller Derby Paris began planning a new tournament for 2019, they had a problem -- they couldn't agree upon a name.  They punted the problem down the road by recruiting officials for a new tournament with the name to be announced.  Officials were perplexed what they should refer to it during the intervening time.  One person remarked (and this is an exact quote), “Is it called "Derek"? Derek would be a great name for a tournament. It's Derek right?”  The tournament eventually went on to become The 90s Show!, but to the officials it was Derek.  I don't know who created the patches, but officials at the tournament were issued this patch (along with stickers and business cards).

This is the official patch of the "f/2.8 Fast Glass Around the Derby Track" group on Facebook for derby photographers. According to photographer Dan Crowther...

"F/2.8 refers to the typical maximum aperture of the lenses needed in shoot low light while still maintaining a shutter speed fast enough to capture action. The lower the F number the more light a lens can let in which helps offset the fast shutter speed needed to stop fast action without blur. 'Fast Glass' is a generic term used by photographers refer to lenses that are capable letting in more light than the standard lenses sold with the camera from the store (those lenses are known as 'kit lenses' and often have a max aperture of F/3.5-F/5)."

 

I'm constantly amused this patch only has six blockers.
