Description

Odds are you’ve never laid eyes on a Roberto Clemente single signed ball as nice as this one. This Eastern Airlines baseball has a near perfect blue/green signature (9-10) from the Pittsburgh legend. Uniquely, yet perfectly placed, the signature fully traverses the sweet spot, unlike most Clemente signatures. One might wonder the significance of the Eastern Airlines trademark ball. During the turbulent 1960’s, flights destined for Miami or Puerto Rico were being hijacked to Cuba at an alarming rate. For Eastern Airlines it was a strategic move to employ an Hispanic celebrity as its representative. Also, Eastern was one of the few airlines that flew into Puerto Rico, Roberto’s birthplace. As a spokesman for the airline, Roberto signed while Eastern provided the balls. No one knows how many are still in existance, but they rarely surface. The ball itself is wonderfully toned and boasts one of the finest signatures extant of this legendary Hall of Famer.
