Impressive, Strong 1971 Image of Roberto Clemente.

Lot 401. Impressive, Strong 1971 Image of Roberto Clemente. The future Hall of Fame outfielder smiles broadly in this wonderful 5” x 9” black & white photo after belting a walk-off home run to give his Pittsburgh Pirates a 2-1 victory in 17 innings against San Diego. The marathon competition took place on July 16, 1971 at Three Rivers Stadium. (Printing on the back of the photo incorrectly lists the final score as 4-3.) The victory was one of 97 that placed the Pirates first in the N.L. East Division at season’s end. After eliminating the San Francisco Giants in four NLCS games, they required seven games, one in extra innings, to claim the World Championship in a series with Baltimore. Clemente was voted the Series MVP. Close-up, this photo shows several small, extremely light creases. At a standard distance, it displays magnificently and is among the most attractive images of Clemente ever captured by any camera. Winning Bid $225.
