The Clemente bobbing head is one of the rarest and most popular of all bobbing-head dolls. This is a beautiful ultra high-grade example, one of the freshest and finest we have ever seen. This doll has obviously been carefully stored away for decades! As advanced bobbing-head doll collectors are well aware, on any doll one can take a magnifying glass to locate a tiny surface stress fracture here or there, but imperfections are few and far between on this gem, even on close inspection. Strong Near Mint condition, with virtually perfect decals, which are almost impossible to find for this doll. An outstanding high-grade example of the most highly sought-after of all vintage bobbing heads, one of the truly great Roberto Clemente display items. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $2,666
