Wilson official "Liga de Baseball Profesional de Puerto Rico" baseball signed in black ink by Hall of Fame outfielder Roberto Clemente across the sweet spot. Clemente has inscribed the ball "To Leslie/Best Wishes/Roberto Clemente," with both the inscription and signature grading "5." This is only the second official Puerto-Rican League ball signed by Clemente that we have seen and the first we have offered, making it an especially rare and desirable single. It should also be noted that Clemente sweet-spot signatures are the exception rather than the rule, as he customarily chose a side panel when autographing balls for fans. The ball displays a few scattered areas of light age toning and is otherwise in Excellent to Mint condition. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Reserve $500. Estimate (open).
