With sights set on 21-year-old Roberto Clemente, a 1950s autograph seeker obviously had a keen eye for talent – and got his wish as Clemente complied and autographed this vintage black-and-white photo postcard. Measuring 3-5/8 x 5-1/2” the blank-backed correspondence piece shows a young Clemente posing in his Pirates home uniform. Clemente has signed in blue ballpoint (“9” strength) and inscribed “Best Wishes.” On the reverse, the item is addressed to its Idaho-based recipient and postmarked “SEP 6 1956 – NEW YORK, N.Y.” – which is consistent with Clemente’s schedule, as that date was an off day following the Pirates’ three-game series in Brooklyn. Accompanying is a full photo LOA from JSA.
