LELANDS auction house is the temporary home of museum quality pieces of sports memoriabila. An great example of this is a prior auction for a game worn Roberto Clemente Pittsburgh Pirates fitted baseball cap. This special cap was used during a monumental moment during his Clemente's career. At 35 years old and showing no signs of slowing down, he racked up a career high batting average of .352 during the 1970 season. Clemente's stellar performances were prematurely and tragically cut short when he died during a plane flight, while delivering aid to earthquake victims in Nicaragua. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame posthumously in 1973, becoming the first Latin American to receive that recognition. Roberto Clemente is the only Hall of Famer for whom the mandatory five year waiting period was dismissed. This classic New Era cap was under the care of close friend and personal assistant Phil Dorsey. Handwritten on the interior is "1970 Forbes Field" and "21" in Black marker. The first is a very rare detail. Size tag is worn but appears to be a size 6-7/8 to 7. At the close of this auctions the final bid reached $12,231.80
