Roberto Clemente Painting (11X14)
This item, a painting of Pirates legend Roberto Clemente (inspired by his 1955 Topps card) on an 11X14 wood canvas, is 1 of 1. There is no other like it.
Lost Ballparks artist Michael Koser has created a new series of original paintings, "Lost Ballparks Legends" featuring some of baseball's all-time greats.
Clemente, who played his entire career with the Pittsburgh Pirates, was a 15X All-Star, 12X Gold Glove winner, 4X NL batting champion, 2X World Series champion and without question one of the most electric players to ever play the game! Tragically, his life was cut short by a plane accident in 1972 just a couple of months after collecting his 3,000th hit. He was posthumously inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame the very next year.
Clemente once said, "I was born to play baseball. I want to be remembered as a ballplayer who gave all he had to give."
