Hawking what was once among the top-selling ales, Roberto Clemente is the heroic subject on this well-preserved 1960s Ballantine Beer 8x10 advertisement. The black-and-white print depicts the Puerto Rican slugger in a kneeling pose with the beverage's "Purity - Body - Flavor" three-ring logo and a printed legend that reads: "Roberto Clemente al bate con cerveza Ballantine" (Roberto Clemente at bat with Ballantine Beer). The crease-free keepsake maintains sharp edges/corners and a glossy finish.
