    Description

    1968-70 Roberto Clemente Game Used Bat. One of American sports most tragic figures, Roberto Clemente's brilliance upon the field of play was matched only by his great humanity, with his martyrdom in the cause of delivering relief to Nicaraguan earthquake victims securing his status as one of the game's true heroes. The offered Adirondack 234X formed a brief partnership with the Pittsburgh Pirates Hall of Famer during the late 1960's, earning a few ball marks and green bat rack streaks before a handle crack ended its term of service. Number "21" appears in vintage black marker at the knob and barrel end. Length of thirty-six and a half inches and weight of thirty-five ounces are correct for Clemente's preferred specifications, and match the manufacturer's ordering records. A solid late-career gamer, earning a grade of GU6 from the experts at PSA/DNA. LOA from Taube & Malta.
