1973-74 Itinerario Oficial (Clemente back cover)...I found the same photo online used on the cover.
The foreign publications are some of my favorites. This is no exception.

This original comic art originated from the Clemente comic produced by Legendary Comics in 1992. Although the comic was disappointing I loved the title page art. I took a chance and called Revolutionary Comics. I talked to Todd Loren who owned the company and he agreed to sell me the page. He said he had the painted version of the page as well but had to locate it. He suggested that I call him back in a couple of months and he would sell that to me as well. I'm glad I purchased the original inked page because when I attempted to call him again I learned he had been murdered. The murder remains unsolved. I later learned he was quite an unpopular and controversial person.

It is one of the stranger stories I have related to my collection. There is a theory that Loren was killed by serial murderer Andrew Cunanan. One of Cunanan's victims was designer Gianni Versace. So on to less macabre subjects...what's on tap for day 79 Mike?

That is a great piece of artwork Mike! As Howard said, the back story is crazy, I did a google search after I read your post.

I'm realizing you have a pretty nice Roberto collection yourself mixed in with all your Pirates stuff. Would love to see more from you and Howard.

On tap for Day 79? Now I feel some pressure...it was going to be a pretty pedestrian piece, but I'll try to post something better.

Default 1971 Program

This is an Old Timers day program from the first game I ever attended. Shown is the front cover, back cover, and the photo and write-up for Roberto.

Day 79

I won this next piece in 1999 off eBay. I remember in the seller's item description he stated that he had obtained these autographs in person when he was a kid. After I won the item, I asked the seller if he would write a short note detailing his acquisition of the autographs. The seller kindly agreed and I am posting a photo of the letter he sent me. I like how he remembers the little details (except who won the game) and this letter is part of the appeal in owning it to me.

1961 Pirates vs. Cubs signed scorecard...

P.S. July 6th, 1961 was a double-header and the Pirates won Game 1 by a score of 15-3, however they lost the second game to the Cubs 5-1.

Great program blackandgold!

Nice autograph Mike. I think that's the third one you posted? I own a couple that I will share here eventually. Blackandgold l think it's very cool you got to see that game. Here are a few original amateur slides taken at that game. They include Clemente, Mantle, and Berra . I have many others from that day. If you are interested in seeing those let me know. This is the only Clemente image I have from that day. I dont know if he played in that game beyond being introduced. I have photos of Maz playing second. I assume Cash started at second base that day against Philadelphia. However, Clemente doesn't appear at the plate or in the field. My program for that game is unscored so I don't know if he played. Do you recall who won the game? I have a slide of the scoreboard that shows the Bucs ahead 2-1 in the 6th.
