Description: Roberto Clemente Pittsburgh Pirates professional model baseball hat c.1970-72. Original Pittsburgh Pirates hat in classic mustard yellow body with black bill and embroidered "P" on front. Interior retains its original New Era Pro-Model tagging with a vintage "21" written in black marker under the bill. Exceptional use is evident throughout including interior perspiration residue and soiling wear to the bill. Small area of tattering to the "P" on front which could have occurred during game use or post career. Game used hats from Hall of Fame players are among the most rare and coveted of any medium given the lack of direct authentication identifiers. The offered hat is the only example within the Clemente Collection which we would place among the most desirable of its type/era to have been offered at public auction. Includes letter of provenance from the Clemente family: EX
