It's not unusual to see UK Basketball memorabilia for sale online, but there are items on eBay from a former Wildcat star that are quite unusual.

Someone is selling a prison uniform, reportedly worn and autographed by former Wildcat guard Ed Davender, who is doing time for running a UK basketball ticket scam.

The initial asking price for the items on eBay is $750.

The items appear to have Davender's signature on them and #15, which he wore at Kentucky.

In 2010, Davender was sentenced to 8-years in prison for accepting money from people with the promise that he would get them UK basketball game tickets, but they never received the tickets.

Before he was sentenced in Lexington, Davender was already on probation in Fleming and Grant counties and in a diversion program in Harrison County for other convictions related to the ticket scam.

Davender's attorney said the total amount Davender was accused of illegally taking came to around $100,000.

Davender played at Kentucky from 1984-to-1988. 

He ended his UK career with 1,637-points and 191-steals.

He was chosen in the third round of the 1988 NBA draft by Washington, but he never played in the league.
