    Description

    1970-72 Roberto Clemente Single Signed Baseball. In a time when superstar baseball players tend to disappoint more than inspire, a hero like this Pittsburgh Pirates Hall of Famer looks all the more impressive. Clemente's untimely passing in an airplane accident while on a humanitarian mission to aid Nicaraguan earthquake victims has left the hobby with a shortage of quality signatures, and particularly single signed baseballs, which approach or exceed $10,000 for quality examples. This ONL (Feeney) ball was produced from 1970-72 and signed by the baseball martyr across the sweet spot. Clemente also offered his "Best Wishes" in 6/10 ink. The ball shows some age/tone wear. The panel below Clemente's signature has a moderate stain mark. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from SGC Authentic.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $3,000 - up.

    Auction Type
    Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
