    Description

    1960's Roberto Clemente Single Signed Baseball, PSA/DNA EX 5. "I want to be remembered as a ballplayer who gave all he had to give," Clemente once said, and that is indeed his legacy. The Hall of Fame outfielder's sudden and tragic loss while on a humanitarian mission continues to reverberate to this day in the collecting world, where the supply of autographs falls far short of demand. Here we present a fine example of his essential single, an ONL (Giles) ball inscribed on the sweet spot, "Best Wishes, Roberto Clemente." The experts at PSA/DNA have assigned ratings of 6/10 and 4/10 for the autograph and baseball respectively, accounting for the final grade as posted. Full Grading LOA from PSA/DNA, EX 5. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
