    Description

    Mid-1950's New York Yankees Game Worn Warm-Up Jacket. The Big Apple has always been one of the fashion capitals of the world, and the best-dressed list always begins in the Bronx. This navy wool letterman-style jacket would surely meet with Mr. Blackwell's approval, sporting a scripted white felt "Yankees" across the zippered chest, striped cuffing at collar, waist and sleeve ends, and suede trimmed front pockets. A "42" size designator is found at lower front right tail, with an indecipherable handwritten notation (initials?) upon it. Note that the jacket is identical in style to the one worn by Mickey Mantle as he was presented the American League MVP award on Opening Day 1957 for his brilliant Triple Crown season of the previous year. Moderate wear is evident throughout the garment, with some repairs to the attachment of sleeve to cuff. Still a solid and eminently displayable artifact, sure to evoke the spirit of a special time in New York City baseball. LOA from Lou Lampson.
