This lot features a pair of vintage 1970’s and ‘’80s warm-up jackets from the University of Detroit Titans men’s basketball team, sporting the school’s red, white and blue color scheme. The Titans have been a consistently strong mid-major program and made it to the Sweet 16 in 1977 under head coach Dick Vitale. Hall of Famer Spencer Haywood starred for the Titans in the late 60's.

The first polyester jacket includes several pieces of embroidery and tackle twill lettering that makes it very unique. The largely white button-down Rawlings polyester jacket (size 42) includes proper tagging on the inside right front area with washing instructions. The Titans’ team mascot appears holding a yellow embroidered basketball on the front and then appears a second time on the back of the jacket standing on a yellow tackle twill basketball outlined in blue embroidery. The white jacket reads “detroit” on the front in red tackle twill outlined in blue while the reverse reads “titans” with the mascot serving as the letter “t.” The number “12” appears on the lower left front area in blue tackle twill outlined in red. Appearing on the inside rear of the red, white and blue collar is the name “Ross Marks” in black marker. Blue and red tackle twill stars run the length of both short sleeves.

The second button-down polyester jacket, size 46, includes a Wilson manufacturer’s tag on the inside rear collar. On the left font chest area is a large, sewn-on “University of Detroit” emblem that utilizes the red, white and blue theme. This differs from the first as it’s long-sleeved. Across the back reads “DETROIT” in red tackle twill letters outlined in blue. Elastic red, white and blue trim outline the collar, waistband and both wrists. Rare to find a pair of college basketball game-worn warm-up jackets from this era.
