Hunt's Auction: Clemente

Roberto Clemente should have been a Dodger. He was originally signed by the Dodgers as an amateur in 1952, and even played for the Montreal Royals, the Dodgers Minor League affiliate, a couple of years later. Unfortunately, the Rule 5 draft came along in November of 1954 and the Pirates stole him from us. Of course, if we had just placed him on our regular roster instead of trying to hide an obviously talented kid in the minors I wouldn't be complaining now.

Below is a actual game-used Baseball glove once worn by Clemente available for viewing and auction at this years All-Star Game Fan Fest Hunt Auction. Game used memorabilia from this Hall of Famer are very rare.
