    1972 Roberto Clemente Signed Photograph Dated to 3,000th Hit Game! Who could have possibly known, when the great Roberto Clemente signed this magazine photograph for a friend on September 30, 1972, that his fourth inning double off Mets pitcher John Matlack would be the last time he would hit safely in a regular season game? And who could have believed that this great ballplayer and humanitarian would be lost to the Atlantic Ocean in just three months time? One can't help but get chills when holding this 8x10" page removed from a Pirates program upon which the tragic Hall of Famer penned the words, "Para Mickey en el dia de mi hit 3,000. Con cariño y alegria, Roberto Clemente." (Translation: "For Mickey on the day of my 3,000th hit. With care and happiness, Roberto Clemente.") The blue ink inscription remains in stellar 10/10 condition, and the page presents marvelously despite a degree of age toning and light creasing. Certainly the most desirable Roberto Clemente signed photograph in the hobby. LOA from PSA/DNA.
