Lot 1114: Roberto Clemente Last Game Full, Unused Ticket (2.25x5.5”)
His was perhaps one of the most mourned losses in Puerto Rican history. Hall of Fame hero Roberto Clemente was killed in a plane crash en route to a relief effort, organized by him, to help the earthquake victims in Managua, Nicaragua. Offered is a full, unused ticket to his last game - Game 5 of the 1972 League Championship, in which the Cincinnati Reds knocked the Pittsburgh Pirates out of World Series contention despite a single and homer from Roberto Clemente. Box seat ticket for row 17, seat 105 boasts photo of Riverfront Stadium. Excellent condition with one set of staple holes and minimal damage otherwise.
