    Description

    1960's Roberto Clemente Single Signed Baseball. He gave his Pittsburgh fans the privilege of witnessing his 3,000th career hit before giving his life in a tragic airplane accident during the subsequent off-season while on a humanitarian aid mission to Nicaragua. Joining the likes of Lou Gehrig and Jackie Robinson as the best and bravest in baseball history, Clemente should be considered an essential component of any quality autograph collection.

    Here we present a particularly intriguing example, pairing a 9/10 blue ink signature with an ONL (Giles) ball that strongly suggests game use prior to its meeting with Clemente's ballpoint pen. Could it be one of the superstar outfielder's 240 home runs? There must be some reason why a game used baseball is signed by only Clemente, but that reason will remain a mystery. But this much is certain--any collection lacking a single from this true sports hero will be improved significantly by its addition. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
