Months after the plane crash that tragically cut his life short, Pittsburgh Pirates teammates took the field in memory of the great Roberto Clemente. This 3" diameter patch was worn on the Pirates uniforms for the 1973 season. It displays a thick black border with Clemente's 21 in the center on a white background and, of course, he was the last player to wear that number in a Pittsburgh uniform. The patch is in EX-MT condition.
