Lot 1678: Roger Clemens High School Yearbook
Roger Clemens Senior Yearbook 1980 Spring Woods High School, Houston, TX. This copy is in superb condition and most of the inscriptions are on the inside covers and end papers. There are no material defects of any kind. The cover and binding are fine. The inside has no moisture damage, no cutouts, no torn or missing pages. The very first photo of Roger in the book shows him making a tackle on the Varsity football team. The next photos are from the Varsity Baseball section and one shows him fielding a bunt off the mound and the next is a great half page, full front and face photo of him pitching along with text discussing his role as First Baseman-Pitcher. Next comes his posed individual head photo in the Seniors section wearing a bowtie and tuxedo shirt (his activity list is separately printed in the back of the book). The last two shots are team shots of the baseball team (OK) and the Football team (cannot make him out). Roger stands alone (and most likely will continue to) as the ONLY pitcher to win the Cy Young Award an amazing 6 times. This documents, through words and pictures, his personal history.
