1971 Pittsburgh Pirates Signed Baseball Roberto Clemente PSA 25 signatures :
This is a 1971 genuine Official National League ball that has been in my family since 1971 when my grandfather gained access to the clubhouse after one of the World Series games and got 25 signatures, including Roberto Clemente and Willie Stargell. When I was 6 years old I took this ball off my grandfather's mantle (he lived in Johnstown, PA) and went outside and dropped the ball in the snow. Being that my family was from Pittsburgh/Johnstown, I had basically committed the worse crime in history by losing this ball. Come spring time, my grandfather found the ball then gave it to my mother when we moved to Florida. Fast forward to 1996 and my mother tragically passed away. At her funeral, her brother who was a collector and owned a baseball card shop in Phoenix, asked if he could have the ball as the last memory of his father and my mother. Obviously, I gave him the ball. Move on to 2013 and I now live in Oklahoma. My uncle dies in 2013 in Phoenix and has 4 million pieces of memorabilia since he was a collector. My cousin, his daughter, was to fly out to AZ from FL to gather his things. I asked her to search for this ball and if I could have it if she finds it. She says she knows nothing about sports memorabilia and that his house is an absolute disaster. I do not hear from her for 6 months and then this ball shows up at my front door. I send it off to get it authenticated and find out that it is, in fact, genuine and that all the signatures are still legible. I planned on passing this ball along to my son one day. But, divorce is a bitch and now this baby must go. Hope someone enjoys it....
