    1973-74 Kentucky Colonels Team Signed Mini Ball with Rare Wendell Ladner Signature. We have encountered ABA basketballs through the years but this is the first mini-ball we have found. This rubber ball is signed by the 1973-74 Kentucky Colonels. Worth special mention is the rare signature of Wendell Ladner. Tragically, the lovable big man died in a plane crash in June of 1975. The autographs endorsed in red ink have saturated in the ball and rate 5/10. Ladner's signature is in red ink and conducted on a white panel. Autographs include: Louie Dampier, Ladner, Ron Thomas, Artis Gilmore, Walter Simon, Jimmy O'Brien, Dan Issel, Rick Mount and a few more. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
