* His 3000th After getting his 3000th hit on the last day of the 1972 season, Roberto Clemente died in a plane crash 3 months later.

Price will vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature.Photo composition, appeal, and how well the photo displays the signature will effect the value. The type of ink used, and how it stands out in contrast to the photograph will also effect the price. Value is based on average prices of recently closed auctions. Prices may vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature. Signatures that have not been properly authenticated could sell at half the market value or less. Add for inscriptions. Roberto Clemente archived his 3000th hit on September 29 1972, and his life was tragically taken away on December 31, 1972. A very short time to sign a 3000 hit photo. This will make the signature very rare, and add value but, a red flag must be posted as to its authenticity. Having the signature authenticated is a must.In a May 2006 auction a Roberto Clemente signed 8x10 page(photo) from a Pirates program, inscribed 3000 hitssold for $4,780. A signed photo will sell for more, and if a picture of him hitting number 3000, even more.
I presume you're referring to the fact that he hit his 3000th hit in that season.
