The following ebay auction was pointed out to me...

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mark-Donohue-Jacket-AMC-Javelin-c-1970-71-Trans-Am-/290876951287?pt=Vintage_Sports_Memorabilia&hash=item43b99e0af7

The seller, jrtpip, makes the following statement about the jacket... "Mark Donohue's Racing Jacket- Associated with the 1970-71 AMC's Javelin, Matador -AMC Racing Team. This jacket is presently held privately in the collection of a Donohue family member. It is documented. I have listed this for the family member.  The jacket dates to the Penske years of Mark's career -innovations and 1971Trans-Am Championship . It is truely a part of racing history. It is a nylon parka style jacket, Silk screened Mark Donohue  on the front  and Javelin on the back, shows some wear, fleece in the body.  It was worn by Mark and has grease stains."

The seller is also offering another jacket from earlier in Mark's racing career when he was running an Elva Courier.
This Jacket didn't sell, at the time of the auction I decided not to pursue this; I've been regretting that of late :)
I just sent the seller an EBay message to see if it's still available, I know this is a complete shot in the dark, but I had to give it a try. If anyone knows anything on this…

I don't have any other info other than what I posted about the auction but good luck. Maybe it's still available.

A little too early for the Trans-Am era but an interesting card from the RRDC signed by Mark Donohue in this ebay auction...

I have had the Mid-Ohio program for awhile. This was an image that I think I saved off an ebay auction because it showed the spectator pass.

Here's a very rare item I've never seen before - a poster for the '67 Las Vegas 350 Trans-Am race. Anything from this race is a particularly hard find, for those who are into collecting Trans-Am memorabilia.

As they say -  very cool!  I was a spectator at this race - on my way to CA.  Can-Am race was also this wknd.  On the Monday there was a Firestone test day at the
track with Mario driving, and I got a ride from the track to Las Vegas in a real 289 Shelby street Cobra

No, Mario was testing tires, and there was a guy watching who owned the Cobra, and he gave me the ride into town.
