    Description

    1960's Roberto Clemente Signed Photograph. His life and his death were tributes to his skill and character respectively, and he properly joined Lou Gehrig as the only ballplayer whose five-year waiting period for Hall of Fame enshrinement was waived after his tragic passing. Here he inscribes and signs an 8x10" photograph picturing the Pirates outfielder as an endorser of Ballantine beer. He writes, "Con los mejores deseos de Roberto Clemente," translated to "With my best wishes." Lower left corner bend remains clear of the inscription, and the photo is otherwise free of any significant distractions. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
