Day 282


I really like the simplicity of the original 1960s Hartland statues and the way they actually look like the player. Even though a newer issue, I think the 1990s issued Clemente has the look and feel of the originals. The 2006-07 issues, not so much.

This looks like the place to ask if anyone knows what these were cut from. I’m guessing it is from some sort of outer packaging.

Matt,

I have been collecting Clemente for a long time and have never seen those items before. They both have that "fantasy piece" look to me. I could be wrong, as there are always items that I haven't seen, but that's my initial impression.

Hi Mike,

I have been collecting Clemente since my teens and I hadnít seen them either. My reason for thinking they arenít fantasy pieces is where they came from. Iíve done my work on them and to the best of my abilities they seem legit. I hope itís not my inner child speaking though.

Hi Matt,

Welcome to the board. The images were used on a number of different items. Would be helpful if you could - 1- provide better and closer scans of the front and back, 2- Provide dimensions and paper stock and 3 - fill us in on "where they came from" that makes you believe they are legit. All the best.

Howard

Not at home right now so I need to measure when I am. I ran them by a few old timers on the hobby, including my father who has been in the business since 1961. I grew up in a card shop. These came from Jim Beckett. Iíll get better scans up when I can.

1966 Pirates pocket schedule & Team photo (w/ overprint)...





Similar to the photos I posted yesterday, this next photo (not mine) is a 1966 photo without the overprint.





It wasn't until this year that I saw a photo with the red KDKA & Foodland overprint on it. It was in rough shape but I was happy to add it.





And as it always seems to happen, after having never seen one and purchasing it, a nicer one appeared a few months later so I was able to upgrade.

The seller I purchased the next item from told me he took the photo during the 1972 season, but did not have it developed until 1973. So taken 5-6 months prior to his death.

Iím sure it was taken during the Ď72 season since in the background itís advertising an upcoming game on July 16th vs. the Astros (which occurred in Ď72).

The exact same Clemente Rawlings Advisory Staff photo appeared on eBay. I was not going to miss out on the same photo twice. I am thrilled to finally add one to my collection.

Default Glad it was you

Saw it. Had a lowball bid in just to ensure it didn't sell too low (~$200). GREAT item! First I've seen in a long time. Enjoy it.

I don't believe I knew until right now that Roberto's full name was Roberto Enrique Clemente Walker. I just assumed his full name was Roberto Clemente, which is ignorant of me because, just looking up Mickey Mantle, I just learned his full name was Mickey Charles Mantle.

Irv,

You learn something new every day. I think thereís a signed document on eBay right now where he signed Roberto Clemente Walker.

I hope it's okay to share this story (lifted from SABR bio page):

Yankees (and former Met and Pirate) 2B Neil Walker's father was Tom Walker a right-handed pitcher in the 1970's and this is his connection to Roberto:


'Walker and Moore decided to play winter ball in Puerto Rico, along with Expos pitcher Balor Moore and some members of the Pittsburgh Pirates. Roberto Clemente was their manager. Years later Walker felt fate entered his life again. On December 31 Clemente planned to fly in a plane carrying supplies to earthquake victims in Nicaragua. Clemente told Walker and the other players to stay behind and enjoy New Yearís Eve in Puerto Rico.

That night Clementeís plane burst into flames shortly after take-off and plunged into the dark waters. Walker said he would forever remember that day and how the island was devastated. Clementeís fellow Puerto Ricans revered him. Out of respect for their fallen hero, the league canceled the balance of the season.

ďI can still remember it like yesterday,Ē Walker said. ďWe left the airport and it was the last time I ever saw Roberto Clemente. He saved my life by not letting me get on the plane.Ē

Really nice looking store model bats. From the picture they seem to be in nice shape. Do you do anything to clean them or do you just leave them as is?

Mark, I try to avoid buying large items anymore, but when I would see nice store model bats at shows, I would purchase them. I never tried to clean them as they were fairly presentable already. I do have some lower condition bats as well.

Mike, it has some defects that canít be seen in the photo, but until I can upgrade, it will have to do. Normally, I dont worry about trying to upgrade, but the defects bother me on this one.

Trust me, itís not. The paper photo under the laminated portion of the pin is vey wavy (warped), not sure how that happened. The laminated portion is not flush with the paper photo and I think thatís how the paper became wavy.
