ROBERTO CLEMENTE

Roberto Clemente Walker (August 18, 1934 – December 31, 1972) was a Puerto Rican professional baseball player and a Major League Baseball right fielder. He was born in Carolina, Puerto Rico, the youngest of seven children. On November 14, 1964, he married Vera Zabala at San Fernando Church in Carolina. The couple had three children: Roberto Jr., Luis Roberto and Enrique Roberto. He began his professional career playing with the Santurce Crabbers in the Puerto Rican Professional Baseball League (LBPPR). While he was playing in Puerto Rico, the Brooklyn Dodgers offered him a contract to play with the Montreal Royals. Clemente accepted the offer and was active with the team until he was drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the Major League Baseball draft that took place on November 22, 1954.

Clemente played eighteen seasons in Major League Baseball from 1955 through 1972, all with Pittsburgh. He was awarded the National League's Most Valuable Player Award in 1966. During the course of his career, Clemente was selected to participate in the league's All Star Game on twelve occasions. He won twelve Gold Glove Awards and led the league in batting average in four different seasons. He was involved in charity work in Puerto Rico and other Latin American countries, often delivering baseball equipment and food to them. He died in an aviation accident on December 31, 1972, while en route to deliver aid to earthquake victims in Nicaragua. His body was never recovered. He was elected to the Hall of Fame posthumously in 1973, thus becoming the first Latin American to be selected and the only current Hall of Famer for whom the mandatory five year waiting period has been waived since the wait was instituted in 1954. Clemente is also the first Hispanic player to win a World Series as a starter (1960), win a league MVP award (1966) and win a World Series MVP award (1971).

  Career Highlights:


SPANISH / ENGLISH:
<!--[endif]-->

En 1942, el joven Hiram Bithorn se nos convierte en nuestro primer Toletero Boricua en alcanzar las Grandes Ligas. Desde ése entonces, Puerto Rico, cuna de grandes deportistas, se ha destacado a nivel mundial como productor de peloteros profesionales, con con unos 252 que han llegado a las Grandes Ligas, cosa que nos enorgullece como pueblo. Hoy por hoy son muchos de nuestros campeones que le sirven de arbitros, entrenadores, y entrevistadores que recorren la America Latina, y sobre todo el Caribe, en busca de buenos prospectos para las Grandes Ligas. Este set busca perpetuar este acontecimiento histórico, homenajeando, al menos a nuestros primeros 20, con el propósito de perpetuar sus hazañas y servirle de ejemplo a nuestra juventud.
<!--[endif]-->

Since our young, 100% rice and beans raised Hiram Bithorn came into the Major League Baseball, world professional baseball has seen more than 252 of our Boricua Islanders belong to its ranks, a source of endless pride for all of us Puerto Ricans, for whom Baseball is and will always be one our favorite national sports. From Bithorn to Roberto Clemente to Orlando Cepeda to Alex Rodriguez, and many others, many of our Professional Baseball players have ended as umpires, trainers, and spotters of young prospects, around Latin America, specially in the Caribbean, helping raise the bar in defining equality and ending racial and cultural prejudice against minorities, while spreading an American borne, and one of America's favorite sports of all times to the world stage, even to places like modern Japan, where Baseball is king.  This medal here is part of a 20 medal series, which will honor the first Puerto Ricans to join the MLB, many of whom already served on the extremely competitive environment of the equally prestigious Negro Leagues.


ANVERSO / OBVERSE:

Posee la imagen y el nombre del Toletero, junto con el pueblo y año en que nace, y número de turno que hace, dentro del listado de Boricuas en entrar a las Grandes Ligas. Cada imagen se halla resguardada a su derecha por una rama de olivo, símbolo de la victoria, y a su izquierda por una breve linea escrita, indicatoria del equipo de Grandes Ligas, y la Liga (si Nacional o Americana), a través de la cual el toletero entra a la MLB, y año que entra.
<!--[endif]-->

The obverse shows the image and name of the Baseball player, along with the name of the town of origin and year the player was born. The number at the top of the home town is the turn number within the roster of Puerto Ricans who have made it into the Major League Baseball. To the right of the player is a branch of olive, simbol of victory, while to the lower left of the player is a line which tells with which Major League Baseball the player made it to the MLB, whether it was with the American or National League, and the year the player made it into the MLB.

REVERSO / REVERSE:

El reverso, similar para todas las medallas de esta novedosa serie coleccionable, es nuestra primera pieza bilingue, arriba en Español, debajo en Inglés. Arriba, sobre las banderas de Puerto Rico, dice " Serie Beisbol Boricua de las Grandes Ligas ".  Al centro tiene una estrella solitaria, bajo la cual dice " Puerto Rico 2010 ", y debajo de ésta aparece un diamante de juego, sobre el cual aparece en inglés: " Puerto Rican Legends (of the) Major League Baseball ".
<!--[endif]-->

The reverse, similar to all the medals of this wonderfully short and new collectable series, shows our first bilingual medal: It is in Spanish at the top, and in English at the bottom, all due to the importance of the accomplishments these players made while playing for the best American Baseball teams and their legacy left within the history of those teams, and to the cities to where the teams belong. Each reverse is flanked by two Puerto Rico flags, above which it tells about the medal series in Spanish.  Below, it reads: " Puerto Rico 2010 " and below is a baseball field, across which it says " Puerto Rican Legends (of the) Major League Baseball ".  It also states 24K GP (Gold Plate) & 1/100 (total mintage).


DESCRIPCION: / DESCRIPTION:

Consiste en una medalla un poco mas grande que un dólar de plata americano. Tiene un diámetro de 40 milímetros y peso de 31.5 gramos (algo más de 1 onza), tiene bordes acanalados para mejor manejo, y ha sido encapsulada para protección contra  rayazos. Cada pieza ha sido fabricada con terminación en Oro sólido (puro, 24K GP) sobre una base de bronce. La rama de olivo en el anverso,  y las banderas, palabra Puerto Rico, y el diamante de juego al reverso, han sido revestidos de esmalte sintético de alto rendimiento.  La producción total es una limitada a 100 piezas de cada una, todas con la marca de fábrica "PRM" en su anverso, y tirada de "1/100" al reverso.
<!--[endif]-->

Each medal measures a good 40 mm size (slightly bigger than a Morgan Silver Dollar), and weights 31.5 grams (slightly heavier than 1 ounce). Each has reeded edges for easier handling, and comes in its own air tight plastic capsule, to protect against scratches. Material consists of a bronze core, gold plated in pure 24 Karat Gold. Both the olive branch on the obverse, the flags, name Puerto Rico, and Baseball diamond field, have been colorized with high quality synthetic enamel.  The total production is of 100 medals on each of the 20 MLB players. Each obverse is mintmarked with "PRM," and each piece has been written "1/100" (one of a total limited edition of 100 pieces) on the reverse of each piece.
