Kevin Grevey "Wildcat Legend" Print
by David Brian Blondell
A collection of several different images of Kevin Grevey during his playing career at the University of Kentucky. Grevey is the #7 all time scorer (1801 points) in UK Mens basketball history and #3 of players that played 3 years, behind only Issel and Mashburn. Grevey was a member of the 1975 NCAA Championship runnerup team, an All American in 1974 & 1975, All-NCAA Final Four Team member, SEC Player of the Year in 1973 & 1975 and All-SEC team member for all three years of his playing years while attending UK.
This collector print is the third in the "Wildcat Legends" series following Mike Pratt and Tony Delk. Print is limited to a quantity of 250. The print will be hand signed by Kevin Grevey and artist, David Blondell on March 7th, 2015 prior to the Florida game on senior day. There is some irony in the fact that Grevey's #35 jersey was retired on 2/18/95 at a game vs Florida. Jersey retirement and UK "Wildcat Legend" honoree against Florida!
Print will not be available for pickup until March 7, 2015. We can have the print signed by Kevin for you if you are unable to attend or you may come to the signing before the game to personally meet Kevin and get your picture taken with him. If you prefer to have one shipped to you, it will go out the following week.
Preorder your print today to assure you get one, as we expect this to be a highly desired collector piece. Preordering your print will also assure you the opportunity to meet Kevin at the signing. The print number you receive will be determined as orders are received. Low print numbers will go to those that order first. Print size is 10 3/4 by 17 1/4.
