    Description

    1970 Roberto Clemente Signed Check, PSA/DNA Gem Mint 10.

    UPDATE: Please note this check will be encapsulated Gem Mint 10 by PSA/DNA rather than appearing "raw" with a full grading letter.

    The tragic Hall of Famer's autograph could not be considered "common" in any format, but collectors of signed checks have been bedeviled for decades by the scarcity of these official documents. Perhaps two or three will change hands at auction each year. This one, which was executed completely in Clemente's own hand (to Paine Webber for $1,000), presents a magnificent 10/10 black ink signature.

    Two years after writing this check, the newly initiated member of the 3,000 Hit Club would perish at sea, bringing an end to one of the game's most brilliant careers, and securing Clemente's status as one of the toughest autographs of post-war Hall of Famers. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, Gem Mint 10. Full LOA from SGC.
