vintage Champion Sportswear Rally Jackets (1964)

These INCREDIBLE jackets were available in only one color- “oyster”- with any color braid available according to the above copy.   These must have been slow movers at $4.25 a pop and a minimum order of 6 a piece, leading me to believe that there must be unsold stock somewhere in some disheveled Loman-esque former Champion salesperson’s panelled Rochester basement.  My kingdom for all of the unsold Hobart College Herons jackets that were placed like oyster pearls before swine in 1964!
