1983 Dick Perez Original Painting - Roberto Clemente (Donruss)
Starting Bid - $400.00, Sold For - $1,292.50
This original watercolor on board of Roberto Clemente, by renowned baseball artist Dick Perez, is the actual painting used to produce Roberto Clemente's card (#17) issued in the 1983 Donruss Hall of Fame Heroes card set. Clemente has always been a special favorite of the artist. It is for this reason that the only Hall of Fame original postcard that Dick Perez chose to keep for his walls when REA sold his personal collection in 2005 was that of Clemente. Dick Perez is universally regarded as one of the finest baseball artists of our generation and is the only artist to have ever been named The Official Artist of the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. Perez began his affiliation with Donruss in 1982 and for the next fourteen years was responsible for all of the paintings appearing on the company's incredibly successful "Diamond Kings" artwork cards. The painting measures 12 x 15.75 inches and has been matted and framed to total dimensions of 18.75 x 23 inches. Reserve $400. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $1,292.50
