DescriptionCirca 1970 Roberto Clemente Single Signed Baseball. With exactly 3000 hits, Clemente finds himself in more than one elite baseball club. The beloved Pirates slugger was also a twelve-time All-Star and Gold Glove winner, MVP, four-time batting champion, and helped pave the way for Hispanic players in the major leagues. Known as much for his charity work as his baseball skills, Clemente passed away doing one of the things he loved most.
Delivering food and baseball equipment to Nicaragua, his plane went down off the coast of Puerto Rico and the world lost a hero at a far too early age. Signed on an ONL (Feeney) ball, this one is personalized "To Ron, Regards, Roberto Clemente" in red ink that has changed to a pleasant orange tone over time. The signature rates about a 7/10, and PSA/DNA notes that there is evidence of an inscription removal on the north panel. Some spotting and scuffing is evident, with four small spots affecting Clemente's signature. Overall, this is a pleasing example of a Clemente single signed baseball. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
