Lot 1313: Roberto Clemente Autographed Photo with Picture of Him Signing
Roberto Clemente touched so many lives through his tremendous ball playing and humanitarian efforts, and it is easy to miss the very small moments that can play influentially in a young baseball fan’s life, as when on a so-called “Autograph Sunday” at Three Rivers Stadium in Pittsburgh in the early 1970’s, a boy gets an autograph from one of his Major League heroes, Mr. Clemente, on a 4 x 5 ½” black & white photo card (NRMT) carrying the batting champ’s likeness. A ballpoint blue signature rates 9/10, and comes with color snapshot of such a scenario - a boy standing before a table where a seated Clemente signs for his fans. A priceless memory, photographed and signed shortly before this legend’s untimely death.
