After the tragic death of Roberto Clemente, the Hall of Fame did its job and inducted him in 1973, creating a section in Cooperstown entitled “The Roberto Clemente papers”. These (11) memorabilia items feature moderate age-induced wear (average VG-EX) and pays tribute to that moment of enshrinement. A solid collectible for any Clemente enthusiast.
