Lot 14: 1956 Roberto Clemente Wire Photo
Auction Date:8/10/2005 9:00 PM EST
The easy smile Roberto wears in this Feb. 1956 Cuban wire service photo of him in his Santurce Cangrejeros uniform and schmoozing with a Caguas player during the Caribbean World Series suggests that he felt a lot more comfy in the tropics than he did in the States. Few shots of him in his Pirate uniform show him as carefree. 7.25 x 9.25" Spanish caption on the back and the stampings of the Archivo Bohemia wire service and RFM photo agency of Havana. Photo is VG-EX.
