The conclusion of the 2012 Major League regular season finds two baseball powerhouses licking their wounds and re-evaluating their rosters. The New York Yankees, for whom anything short of a World Series title is seen as abject failure, endured a sweep at the hands of the Detroit Tigers in the American League Championship Series. Their perennial AL East rivals, the Boston Red Sox, suffered an even more ignominious fate, recording the club’s first losing season since 1997. There’s a lot pride on the line for both organizations, and for true believers already looking forward to next season, they’ll want to pick up one of these satin baseball jackets from Gourmet Footwear and Mitchell & Ness. Finished with leopard print sleeves, one reps the Yankees, the other the Sox — the hometown teams of Gourmet founders Greg Johnsen and Jon Buscemi. Limited to just 12 per color, the jackets are scheduled to drop October 27th through Gourmet’s online store.
