    Description

    1955 Roberto Clemente Rookie Year Original News Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1. The magnificent Roberto is pictured here during his rookie season of 1955. The young and talented twenty-one-year-old would soon wow all with his sensational bat, mercurial speed on the base paths, and rifle arm from right field. Here, he takes a practice swing for the lens, on the familiar greens of Forbes Field. Chicago Tribune issue measures 8x9" and appeared in the "May 13, 1955" edition. Slight rippling with top and bottom white borders trimmed at the time. Spectacular. LOA from PSA/DNA Type 1.
