Roberto Clemente 1971 Pittsburgh Pirates World Series Champs Signed Baseball JSA


There are a number of reasons why the Pittsburgh Pirates won the World Series in 1971, and most of them have signed this baseball. Presented is a 1971 Pirates team-signed Official National League Feeney ball with (13) autographs, including eight of the nine players in the opening day lineup. When the "Bucs" rolled into the 1971 "Fall Classic", they had to face a super-talented Baltimore Orioles team loaded with four "aces" who won 20 or more games, to go along with a heavy artillery produced by the Robinsons and big "Boog" Powell. Pittsburgh countered with a trio of Hall Famers in Roberto Clemente, Willie Stargell and Bill Mazeroski, who have all contributed autographs to this prized baseball. Filling out the Pirates substantial batting order, were the likes of Al Oliver, Bob Robertson, Richie Hebner, Dave Cash and Manny Sanguillen, who never met a pitch he didn't like. 

This vintage period signed orb reports in (EX) condition, with an evenly toned tan surface and fairly distinct factory labeling stamps. A total of (13) 1971 World Champion Pirates have signed by means of a black ballpoint pen, with:
