Description

A remarkable exemplar of Roberto Clemente (d.1972) is found on this dual-signed baseball. The beloved Pirate penned the south panel of this non-descript Regulation League ball in black ink with the signature grading a (7). The autograph of pitching star Bob Friend (7) graces the west panel. The ball reveals moderate to significant wear throughout including multiple abrasions, scribbling on the north panel and soiling. Despite those detractors, the Clemente signature is perfectly placed and relatively free of any significant flaws. This scarcity is a prime acquisition for the vintage-themed Pittsburgh Pirates fan. Auction COA from James Spence Authentications.
