    Description

    1967-68 Roberto Clemente Game Used Bat, Signed, PSA/DNA GU 7. One of the most exciting pieces of our November 2010 Signature Auction was a Clemente signed gamer from the 1964 season, a relic that inspired a fierce bidding war that ended with a final wave of the paddle at the $28,680 level. We expect another spirited contest for the presented relic, a signature model Hillerich & Bradsby G105 exhibiting good use from a potential two-season span that included Clemente's last of four National League batting titles, a .357 performance in 1967.

    While any Clemente gamer is rightfully deserving of collector lust, signed specimens represent only a tiny fraction of an already thin population. This one is marvelously inscribed in blue ink that retains impressive 9/10 boldness: "To my good friend Manny From your real pal Roberto."

    The bat exhibits good use prior to its meeting with the tragic Hall of Famer's pen, with stitch impressions and rack streaks apparent on the barrel. Number "21" appears in marker on the knob, as does a handwritten number "38," indicating weight in ounces. Number "21" is repeated in marker on barrel end. Length is thirty-six inches. The collecting appeal: immeasurable. LOA from PSA/DNA, GU 7 (bat). Full LOA from PSA/DNA (autograph). Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication (autograph).

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
