Exceptional 1955 Pittsburgh Pirates scorecard, featuring an unscored game between the Pirates and the Cincinnati Reds.  The key to the scorecard, of course, is Roberto Clemente, the rookie centerfielder and leadoff hitter for the Pirates.  Clemente started just seven games in centerfield in 1955, though there's no way to know whether or not this scorecard is from one of the Hall of Famer's first games since it has not been scored, it is entirely possible that the scorecard was issued early in Clemente's time with the team.  As an added bonus, the scorecard features a display ad for Honus Wagner's Pittsburgh sporting goods store, as well as for Pie Traynor's radio broadcast on CBS radio, with both Hall of Famers pictured on the inside of the scorecard, making for an outstanding display piece.
