    1977 Thurman Munson Game Worn New York Yankees Jacket Worn in Game 6 of 1977 World Series, with Letter from Teammate Ken Clay. While the name Ken Clay may not be synonymous with pitching greatness, he did have a brush with Yankee lore. In the 1977 season, Clay registered two wins against three setbacks. During the team's World Series run, Clay knew his time in pinstripes might be short. He mustered up the courage and asked Captain Thurman Munson for his jacket following Game 6 of the Fall Classic. Munson, and the Yankees equipment staffers okayed the gift of this memento. The button-up knit jacket shows a season's worth of use as the interlocking team emblem has puckered and taken on a pinkish hue from launderings and game wear. The inside includes an "Aladen" tag, chain-link hanger and "15" written to a blank white swatch. The left sleeve features a felt Yankees team patch (4" in diameter). Navy blue and white ribbed material surrounds the neckline, sleeve ends and tail. According to Clay's story he received this from longtime equipment staffer Pete Sheehy and Nick Priore Oct. 18, 1977 after the team won the World Series. Rarely are we able to link such a significant piece to a player of Munson's caliber, especially one worn to clinch a World Series. Letter of provenance from Ken Clay. Auction LOA from MEARS, Authentic.
