"Roberto Clemente at bat with Ballantine beer" reads the caption in Spanish. Baseball's bond with brew takes on a Latin flavor in this 1960s real photo advertisement signed "Sincerely" by the Pirates' future Hall of Famer and 3,000-hit club member. Twelve-by-nine-inch black and white photo uses grass as background on the lower half while Clemente's upper half becomes a silhouette against an empty background. Stains, yellowing and a strip mark on the back where it was pulled from a mounting are minor. You will toast your good taste in acquiring this one.
