    Circa 1974 John Roche ABA Kentucky Colonels Game Worn Shooting Jacket. Everything the ABA did had a sense of flair. The Kentucky Colonels wore one of the league's most aesthetically pleasing types of shooting jackets. Emblazoned on front is "KC" in single color tackle twill with a three-color chenille-filled basketball logo. Red and white ribbed striping appears on the neckline, sleeve ends and tail.

    The jacket was worn by John Roche, a two-time ACC Player of the year and two-time consensus All-American, during the season the Colonels won the ABA championship, although he was traded to Utah Stars during the season. "John" appears on the reverse in white tackle twill, which replaces a previous name. The collar features a "Rawlings [size] 42" tag. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
