High Bid of $33,501 on 1960 Roberto Clemente Pittsburgh Pirates Game Worn Jersey at Lelands Auction

A highly significant piece of baseball history is currently up for auction at Lelands - a 1960 Roberto Clemente Pittsburgh Pirates World Championship year game worn jersey. This stunning gray vest-style button-front top bears the MacGregor size 42 tag in the collar and a "60" felt year tag inside the front tail along with a Set 2 1960 flag tag.

The iconic "PIRATES" lettering on the front and number "21" on the back are made from black-on-yellow felt and are completely original. Although some of the felt has partially separated from the jersey due to wear and washing, it has been professionally stabilized and does not detract from its appearance. To restore this historic piece, worn or missing areas of piping around the shoulders and neck were carefully repaired with period piping sourced from an original Pirates jersey. Additionally, some buttons have been replaced with period examples that match perfectly.

As of now, the highest bid for this remarkable item stands at $33,501, which showcases its immense value and desirability among collectors. With seven bids already placed, it's apparent that this jersey holds immense historical significance as a part of Roberto Clemente's career during his World Championship winning year with the Pittsburgh Pirates.

The authenticity of this incredible game-worn jersey is thoroughly documented in its accompanying full SGC authentication book, further adding to its value and credibility.

This rare opportunity to own such an exceptional item associated with one of baseball's all-time greats should not be passed up by any serious collector or sports enthusiast. Place your bid and secure your chance to own a piece of Roberto Clemente's legendary legacy.
