I would like this: Rocky Jones, Space Ranger Tunic, 1954

Space Ranger Shoulder Patch

This jacket represents one of the only known pieces to have survived from Rocky Jones, Space Ranger, an important early TV program that aired April-July, 1954. The jacket's militaristic design was a huge influence on uniforms in later sci-fi series like Star Trek and Lost In Space.  (images via Hake's)
