A standard issue gold NASA flight suit from the late 1960s era, owned and worn by Swigert. An embroidered 2.75" diameter NASA "Meatball" patch is sewn on the right breast and a 4" x 2" Velcro strip is sewn on the left breast where the nametag would be (not present). On the upper right sleeve is sewn a 3.75" diameter embroidered Apollo 13 crew patch. The tag at the inside neck reads: "Coveralls, Flying, Mens/ Durette, Gold, Type CWU-P/ NAS 9-13717 MIL-C-83141/ Size 40 R/ Anti-Cold Insulated Clothing".

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
