Lot 1. Get Well Card Signed by Roberto Clemente and 25 Other 1971 World Champion Pittsburgh Pirates. Led by Roberto Clemente’s MVP performance, these Pirates defeated the Baltimore Orioles in a seven-game World Series. Their autographs, ranging from ex-m 6 to mint 9 and averaging nm 7 to nm-m 8, extend across two panels of a three-panel 6 1/8” x 11 5/8” card. Two signatures slightly intersect Clemente’s. Six small holes from pins or tacks that once aided its owner in displaying the card affect the “i” in “Mazeroski.” Here is the complete list of signers: Gene Alley, Steve Blass, Nellie Briles, Dave Cash, Roberto Clemente, Gene Clines, Dock Ellis, Dave Giusti, Richie Hebner, Jackie Hernandez, Bob Johnson, Bruce Kison, Milt May, Bill Mazeroski, Bob Miller, Bob Moose, Frank Oceak, Al Oliver, Jose Pagan, Dave Ricketts, Bob Robertson, Manuel Sanguillen, Rennie Stennett, Bob Veale, Bill Virdon and Luke Walker. This affordable, autographed card wonderfully commemorates the Pirates’ fourth World Championship - and a major highlight of Clemente’s career. Kevin Keating authenticated the autographs.
