Description



Commemorate classy Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Roberto Clemente with this 1970s-1990s poster and advertising sign lot of (7). While the majority of these captivating display items post-date Clemente's demise, there are (2) period pieces from late in his active playing days that are fairly tough. All of these interesting relics maintain a vibrant presence and together they form a fantastic gallery showcasing a heroic baseball icon.

 

Featured are:


c.1970-1972 12-13/4 x 16" Photo poster taken during batting practice at the newly opened Three Rivers Stadium, with Clemente wearing recently designed Pirates uniform. This poster is framed to overall dimensions of 16-3/4 x 20-3/4" and shows NM detail.


1972 "3,000" Hit 12 x17-1/2" (EX) poster with Clemente photo and facsimile signature, plus photos of the other ten members of the "3,000 Hit Club" to date. Text at bottom left indicates Clemente was still alive at the time of this poster's printing, positively dating it to 1972.


1974 Blennd "Pirate All-Stars" 17x22 calendar poster framed to overall dimensions of 18x24, shows VG-EX detail.


1976 Three Rivers Press 28x11 bus sign presents VG-EX details, with photos provided by courtesy of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and Pittsburgh Press. Framed to overall dimensions of 36x12, this loving remembrance shows minor traces of wear including pinholes at the corners and some inconsequential stains on the border at top right. These conditions could easily be matted over with a re-framing.


1980s Canada Dry 18x28 POS advertisement sign framed to overall dimensions of 24x30, with Clemente photo and scholarship promotion, presents VG-EX detail.


1993 Iron City Beer 18x24 POS advertisement sign (VG) with handsome art collage.


1994 Kellogg's "Clemente Coleccion Clasica" Spanish language 17x24 dual-sided POS advertisement sign, formatted in baseball card fashion, presents EX-MT detail with deference to moderate corner dings.
