1960s era Florida State University cheerleader's Jacket. The jacket was hand made by the Seminole Tribe of Florida for Jack Haskins, who was at one time the head coach of the cheerleader squad.

The collection, donated by Jack Crothers to Heritage Protocol, consists primarily of ephemera relating to Florida State sports teams, especially football. The collection includes pennants, a variety of ticket stubs spanning much of the history of Florida State football, and pompons for every ACC team as of 2004. Other items include a jacket acquired from a Seminole Indian reservation and a program for the 1964 commencement ceremony at Florida State University.
