Wendell Ladner played five seasons with five different teams in the ABA, from 1970-71 to 1974-75. A 6'5", 220 lb forward, Ladner was one of the great "enforcers" of the American Basketball Association, protecting Dan Issel of the Kentucky Colonels and Julius Erving of the New York Nets. His handsome looks made him a matinee idol. He was named to the 1971 ABA All-Rookie team. Ladner died at the age of 26 in the June 24, 1975 crash of Eastern Air Lines Flight 66, in New York City. On the inside front tail of the jacket is the "Rawlings" manufacturers size 42 tag. The player number “4” is written on the tag in black marker. On the left breast is the "Colonels" logo in red, white, and blue embroidery and tackle twill. Across the back of the jacket is the player name "KENTUCKY" in blue tackle. The jacket shows nice wear and appears to have no alterations of any kind.
