A member of the last March Madness championship installment from the university of Michigan, former power forward Terry Mills wore this Miami Heat warm-up jacket during the 1998-99 campaign. The red knit button-down garment features two satin-lined front pockets and a club logo sewn to the left breast. A red rope-like drawstring lines the waistline, while elasticized bands line the sleeve endings. Black-and-white striped trim adorns the shoulders/arms, while “MIAMI” is sewn atop the back in black-on-white twill. Within the 3”-wide collar, a “Nike” size “3XL” label has handwritten notations of “54” (likely a size indicator) and “6” (Mills’ uniform number). Flanking this tag are NBA and Miami Heat logo tags. All original and unaltered, the item shows moderate signs of wear.
