Lot 709: Roberto Clemente Negatives (20)
Roberto Clemente was a baseball god, a philanthropist and a man of the people. See all three sides in this remarkable EX set of 20 original negatives showing the Pirates Hall of Famer with family, friends, media and baseball folk. Clemente could work over a pitcher and work a crowd as he grew into his celebrity, especially home in Puerto Rico. But snapshots of him are hard to come by. These rare 2 1/2 x 21/2" candids add dimension to his legend.
