Description

According to one eye-witness authority (teammate, Dock Ellis), Roberto Clemente sometimes busied himself, when in transit, by signing baseballs – particularly those bearing an Eastern Airlines stamp. Certainly, we don’t know the details of how many he signed during the course of his endorsement for the air carrier, but he must have been sparing (quite unlike the frequent card shows attended by Mantle, Slaughter and Feller). In any event, Eastern Airlines singled out Clemente as their optimum spokesman, not only for his universal stardom, but also to lend a little flight security at a time when it was quite fashionable to hijack commercial planes to Latin America (especially the West Indies).

As such, one of the offspring from that marriage made on Madison Avenue is here available. It’s an absolutely sensational Roberto Clemente single-signed ball. It’s a sweet spot writing (as should be expected), and as Clemente autographs are measured, this one is luxuriant – fully spanning 90 degrees across that surface. A ballpoint signature, it has a couple light interruptions in the scribing, and there’s some light/mild staining beneath the signature. But most collectors would welcome this masterpiece at a quality of “trong>8”. There are no other writings on the ball – only Eastern Airlines’ logo stamped on the north panel. Overall grade: 6, Ball Grade 4, Autograde 8
