Lot 1315: Roberto Clemente Contract 1965-1966
Offered is Roberto Clemente's 1965-66 Liga de Baseball Profesional de Puerto Rico contract, signed by the Hall of Famer prior to Winter League play that year. According to the terms, Clemente would be paid a mere $1000 by the San Juan Senadores (the N.Y. Yankees of the P.R League) for his extraordinary services. This four-page document is exactly like a major league contract except in Spanish. Signed by "Roberto Clemente" in bold blue ink that appears as fresh as the day it was penned, an "8" out of possible "10" only due to the interference of an unknown club official's initialing. The contract has four punch-holes at top and shows minor wear, otherwise EX.
