1970 Portrait photograph of the great slugger Roberto Clemente that was used a year and a half later (Jan 1, 1973) to announce his death to the world! A stunning vintage image with heart-breaking overtones, this is one of his best photos ever taken and was selected by the Associated Press as the one to break the horrible news of his passing to its readers. Condition and quality are both outstanding.
