1959 Roberto Clemente Game Used Pittsburgh Pirates Home Jersey Graded A9

1959 Roberto Clemente Game Used Pittsburgh Pirates Home Jersey Graded A9

Hall of Fame rightfielder Roberto Clemente played his entire major league baseball career with the Pittsburgh Pirates. From his rookie year of 1955 through his final season in 1972, Clemente won 12 Gold Glove awards and was elected to the National League All Star team 12 times. He also helped the Pirates win World Series championships in 1960 and in 1971, when he was chosen the World Series MVP. Clemente amassed a total of 3,000 hits over his career, which was cut short when he was killed in a plane crash in December of 1972 while conducting humanitarian work in Nicaragua. This Pittsburgh Pirates home jersey was worn by Clemente during the 1959 baseball season. Made of flannel, the button-front vest-style jersey features "PIRATES" across the front in black-on-gold felt. Clemente's number 21, since retired by the Pirates' organization, appears on the back in the same black-on-gold felt. Gold and black piping trim is sewn around the collar and armholes. There is a Rawlings "Hall of Fame" label sewn on the front left tail, with a size 42 label to its left. Below the labels are, embroidered in black, the numbers 21 and 59, indicating the uniform number and year. Inside the bottom of the left tail is a washing label and a "Set 1 1959" flag tag sewn down by the stitching on the button placket. The jersey shows moderate use and has seen no alterations. There is a stained area on the front left side near the letter "S" in Pirates. The jersey is in excellent condition with all lettering, trim and buttons intact and has been graded Mears A9. A beautiful piece of baseball history for the discerning collector, this jersey evokes the memory of a true baseball hero. Comes with LOA.
