Default VEry interesting

I got burned once on the item itself which was reprinted much later( smaller and darker than original)!! Likely a much less costly mistake than the signed one, but not a happy experience nonetheless.

That 1968 Dexter Press gave me a hearty chuckle. The way it's simply 'signed' Roberto at the bottom gives the illusion he wrote all of that glowing praise about himself, like he was sending a note to a friend. Ha ha.

Not sure why, but this next item doesn't seem to readily available. I've only seen a couple listed on eBay over the last year or so.

Day 161


The next 3 items were issued ca. 2012. They are HOF plaque pinbacks that I believe were awarded/given out at a Little League tournament in California. There are 3 color variations. They are pretty large for pins, 3"x4", and are very HEAVY. Not sure how they could've actually been worn without pulling your shirt off.


2012 Little League HOF plaque pins (set of 3)...







And the next pin I believe was given out to the press during the 2017 Roberto Clemente award presentation (awarded to Anthony Rizzo).

REALLY LIKE the Famous Slugger Yearbooks. The odd ball publications are some of my favorites (I have no idea why...).

That is "King Size Coke" - MUCH tougher than a "regular" coke cap. There are many flavor and bottling plant variations on those bottle caps.

1972 7-11 Slurpee Cup...





There was a lot of 5-6 1972 Slurpee checklist sheets that were auctioned off on eBay within the last 6 mos (I think) that I was an underbidder on. If the winner is a board member and would like to sell one, I would be a buyer.

Hi Guys,

Regarding the photo of Clemente and Mazeroski receiving their Gold Glove Awards, this cannot have been taken in 1963. Pat Jarvis of the Atlanta Braves is walking by in the background, and the Braves did not move to Atlanta until 1966.

My suggestion is that the picture was probably taken on Saturday May 13, 1967 which was during the first of the Braves 3 visits to Pittsburgh that season. Also, it looks like Clemente's 1966 N.L. MVP Award is on the table, so it seems that this was the award presentation day for the Pirates. I would also conjecture that Gene Alley is standing next to Mazeroski since he also won a Gold Glove for 1966.

It would seem that the presence of the MVP Award would pinpoint the picture to 1967, and a Saturday day game seems the most likely to schedule for the ceremony.

Hope this information is useful, and thanks for all the great Clemente items that have been shown so far.

Jeff

This next item shows some Pirates players with their families in June 1972. What I love about this photo is Roberto is pictured with Vera and their three sons in Pirates uniforms.

My understanding is that it was an annual father's son's ball game at Three Rivers. The photo I posted originated originated from Steve Blass' personal collection.

There’s a relatively famous photo of Clemente with his kids taken by SI photographer Neil Leifer that was taken at the stadium that day. Think it’s more than likely from the same day the snapshots were taken.
