Ten days after playing his final game and a mere 2-1/2 months before his untimely death, Roberto Clemente signed this dated "October 13, 1972" check. Drawn from the Mellon National Bank of Pittsburgh, the check was made to cash in the sum of $800. The blue ink signature spans nearly 3" and displays the attributes of an ("8-9") example. Faint bank stampings are found throughout the endorsement but do not affect the overall quality. With exception to a mild black impression, the reverse is clean. Very nice exemplar from the final months of Clemente's life. Full photo LOA from JSA.
