    Circa 1960 Roberto Clemente Original News Photograph by Don Wingfield. The term "hero" is applied too freely to the American sports star, but Clemente's martyrdom in the cause of humanitarian relief leave no question that it is apt in this association. The legendary Pirate stares into an uncertain future in this brilliant photographic portrait by The Sporting News photographer Wingfield, whose skillful balancing act of light and shadow turns this study in greatness into a true work of art. Photo measures 8x10" and is stamped for the photographer and subject on verso. Any minor defects are confined to the narrow white borders, leaving the image itself to present as NRMT.
