Default Hunt Pickups (Clemente or otherwise...)

Anyone here win anything? Prices seemed very strong all the way through.

I'll post my lone pickup when I return home. What an incredible auction... Hoping to see lots of winnings from our Forum!

Unfortunately I did not win anything.

If anyone picked up Roberto's old '72 Charger, props to you and I call shotgun. Sold for $90K.

One of the coolest and most historical items in the auction was Roberto's WS MVP award. Even though it's not the most visually appealing piece, I think I would still get goosebumps if I had the chance to hold it.

I agree prices were really up there. I was looking at a couple Nellie Fox game used items that were past what I was going to pay and that was 2 weeks ago when the auction was just starting with the internet bidding. And they sold for crazy high prices in the end.

Default Well........

This was the event of a lifetime for me - Diehard Clemente collector for almost 30 years. I played and prayed to hit the lottery prior to the auction, but alas it was not to be. Oh to have had a shot at one of those world series rings or the 1960 World Series Uniform. I was in front of my computer from 12-just past 6 following every lot. I was on the phone trying to win my piece of the collection for many. While I agree most of the prices were strong, there were plenty of items that sold within or slightly below the estimates - of course the lots I really hoped to win blew the estimates away (including the gold medal presented to Clemente by the governor of Puerto Rico (underbidder), a twice signed motor vehicle document from 1954 (underbidder) and a presentation sterling vase given to Clemente by his fellow players in honor of his 3000th hit (not even close). I must have been underbidder on at least 12-21 lots. When the dust settled I won a few:

July 25 1970 Roberto Clemente Night resolution from the Puerto Rican House of Representatives
1965 copy of his contract
Winter league lot including programs with Clemente photo content
group of magazines including a couple from Puerto Rico
Man of the year Presentation platter and program
1954 Learners permit see images

Happy to have been able to participate. A few of the lots (and there were quite a few) that blew me away were:

1) 1967 Silver bat - $420,000+BP - highest price in the auction - still shaking my head - could someone explain a rationale that makes this more valuable than either world series ring, the 1960 world series uniform or the 1964 silver bat (260k+BP)
2) 1960 World series press pin - $5,000!!
3) Clemente used shower shoes - $1600

Clemente is my idol. That said, prices were really high on the items I was interested in. Maybe I will catch one back at auction and have a better chance.

My consignment went for freakish money. In a good way. So that was nice.

Default My type 1ny pickup

I feel fortunate to pick this up. I found it very compelling as we all know where his flight was headed "the day... the great one died".

"Description: Roberto Clemente original Puerto Rico Winter League photograph with handwritten inscription c.1970s. Original sepia tone 3 1/2"x6" image picturing Clemente in Puerto Rico Winter League jersey granting an interview at a stadium in Chinandega, Nicaragua. Reverse of the photo features a period ink inscription which is written by Clemente (in Spanish), "For a photo made in Chinandega, Nicaragua" along with unidentified name. Includes auction LOA from JSA (handwriting) and letter of provenance from the Clemente family: EX"

I think I won this. I have not received any confirmation notice or invoice but....I can't stand Hunt's website and this live auction was a challenge for me. I bid I saw my bid flicker and then it sold for what I bid. At least I think it was my bid.
