Due to a deadly plane crash, Roberto Clemente's stellar career was cut short with exactly 3,000 hits. This yellow, small, size 34-36 shirt is circa 1973, the year after his death and is a Hanes rarity. The cartoon image features the Hall of Famer in full swing with the familiar #21 on his back and "300" on a huge baseball, all set against a Puerto Rican flag shield in the background. "ROBERTO CLEMENTE" is written at the top of the front but several letters are worn out. There's also a grease stain on the lower-right section.
