Sale Price $108.00
The 1969 World Series MVP signs on the cover of a pamphlet for the 1988 Equitable Old Timers Game at Shea Stadium.
Pamphlet signed: "Donn Clendenon", 2 pages, 8½x11. Clendenon signs on the cover of this pamphlet for the Equitable Old Timers Game at Shea Stadium on July 23, 1988. The information inside includes black and white photographs of "Great Plays at Shea" and the rosters for the teams of the day. Clendenon (1935-2005) declined contract offers from the NFL Cleveland Browns and basketball's Harlem Globetrotters to play baseball for the Pittsburgh Pirates, his team from 1961 through 1968. It is as a New York Met that Clendenon is best remembered, however. Platooned at first base during the regular season, Clendenon was the Most Valuable Player of the "Miracle Mets" upset victory over the Baltimore Orioles in the 1969 World Series, hitting .357 with three homers and four runs batted in. In the sixth inning of the fifth game, Cleon Jones was awarded first base when Mets manager Gil Hodges pointed to shoe polish on the ball, proving that Jones had been hit by Dave McNally's pitch. Clendenon then homered, beginning the Mets rally from behind to win the game and the Series. After retiring from baseball in 1972, Clendenon became a lawyer. Fine condition.
