His premature exit from the game and the world add a sense of tragedy to his special legacy. This signed and inscribed b&w glossy photo is one of the all too few remaining pieces bearing his legendary penmanship. Inscribed in Spanish, it reads, "Para mi guerido amigo, Ramiro Martinez, Con carino profundo, de Roberto Clemente" In blue ballpoint, Clemente's hand is unmistakable. Translates to: "For my dearest friend, Ramiro Martinez, with deep affection from Roberto Clemente." Nicely and boldly signed. Grades an "8" out of a possible 10. Photos itself is EX except for small pinholes in the corners. Martinez was a confidant of Clemente's and handled many of his business deals, including the promotion that he did with Eastern Airlines.
