Dan Issel "Wildcat Legend"
Signed by Dan Issel and artist
A new "Wildcat Legend" tribute print
dedicated to one of the most beloved star players in the history of the
University of Kentucky mens basketball program. No other player will
ever eclipse all the records that Dan Issel set while attending the
university. A two- time All-American who led his teams to 3 consecutive
SEC championships in the late 1960's, Issel is UK's all-time career
points leader with 2,138 - which occurred over just 3 seasons in the
Pre-Shot clock & Pre 3-Point-Line era. In addition and equally
impressive, Issel is also the school's leading rebounder with 1,078.
Issel was coached by Head Coach Aldolph Rupp and assistant Coach Joe B.
Hall, two iconic head coaches in UK basketball history. Dan went on to
play for the Kentucky Colonels in the ABA and the Denver Nuggets in the
NBA. After his legendary professional playing career was over he went
on to become the head coach of the Denver Nuggets.
The 11” X 17” high-quality Limited Edition fine art prints
will be numbered and signed by Issel; only 500 commemorative prints of
him will be produced.
