Exceptional ticket stub to the National League championship series' Game 5, a 4-3 Pirates loss to the Cincinnati Reds that would mark the final major league game for Hall of Famer Roberto Clemente.  One of the greatest playoff games ever, the Pirates jumped out to an early 2-0 lead, with both teams scratching and clawing into the bottom of the 9th, when Cincinnati came to bat trailing 3-2.  Reds Hall of Famer Johnny Bench clubbed a game-tying home run, and Tony Perez then singled.  Denis Menke moved pinch-runner George Foster to second with another single, and Foster moved to third on a sacrifice fly.  With two outs, pitcher Bob Moose threw a wild pitch, enabling Foster to score and the Reds to win.  Clemente went 1-for-3 with a strikeout and an intentional walk in the contest.  Less than three months later, Clemente would be killed in a plane crash that shocked the country, en route to deliver aid to earthquake victims in Nicaragua on New Years' Eve, 1972.
