Description:
1973 Roberto Clemente Original Artwork Presented to Pittsburgh Pirates. Marvelously rendered oil on board by Marea Mannion is referenced in the June 5, 1978 issue of People Magazine: "The only sports fan in her Altoona, PA family, Marea is also an accomplished musician and artist. Her portrait of childhood hero Roberto Clemente was bought by Altoona's mayor and then presented to the Pittsburgh Pirates." And, sure enough, the plaque affixed to the frame announces, "Presented to Pittsburgh Pirates from the People of Altoona, August 7, 1973." The large and impressive work measures 36x48" framed. A fitting tribute to the heroic Hall of Famer.
