Best Answer

Roberto Clemente was not drafted (the MLB draft began in 1965) but instead was signed as a free agent by the Brooklyn Dodgers prior to the 1952 season.

He subsequently went to the Pirates as a Rule 5 draftee after the 1954 season.

Roberto Clemente Multi-signed baseballA Roberto Clemente single signed baseball is worth between $5,000.-$8,000. Value is based on average prices of recently closed auctions.

Add for inscriptions.A value cannot be given for a Roberto Clemente Multi-signed baseball without knowing the other players that signed the baseball but it would most likely lower the value. The value of multi signed baseballs cannot be priced by the value of each signature added up. Multi signed baseballs are valued as a group of signatures, and how desired that group is as a whole. This does not necessarily mean that two signatures will sell for less than one, but in most cases it does, or at least not the full value of the two signatures added up.

How did Roberto Clemente's plane crash?

The plane was taking off in a very bad storm that well as many other factors....the pilot was supposedly under scrutiny about his history of recent past, he apparantly had license issues...or possibly violations...not sure if alchohol was one of them. But the thing that stood out most to all was the plane had previous issues as well, and it was said to be overweight with its cargo, and fate would have it that Clemente would have been on the plane to assure the supplies for the earthquake victims did in fact reach the victims and not the thieves that horded other emergency supplies, it was a dangerous trip all around and Clemente was warned not to go...but he was an incredible humanatarian and gave his life to help others....he was a role model like none other since! RIP
