Extraordinary Roberto Clemente Single-Signed Ball
Starting Bid - $2,000, Sold For - $8,225
This spectacular Roberto Clemente single-signed baseball certainly ranks as one of the finest examples in the entire collecting world. As was his custom, Clemente has signed this Near-Mint official National League (Giles) ball on a side panel. The blue-ink signature grades a strong "9" and is further illuminated by its brilliant contrast against the snow-white surface. All of the manufacturer's labels are bold and distinct, and the ball, aside from only a tiny bit of surface wear, appears much as it did when first removed from the box. This is the finest Roberto Clemente single-signed ball we have ever had the privilege of offering. Clemente single-signed baseballs are quite scarce and, of course, extremely desirable. Examples in the condition offered here are rarer still and represent a paragon in the field of autograph collecting. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $2,000. Estimate $4,000/$8,000. SOLD FOR $8,225
