This art piece features the year and Hall of Fame plaque in the helmet as Roberto was the only player to have the 5-year waiting period waived and was elected in 1973.
The jersey is an old map, in the style of a pirate map (or at least in my mind haha), with the city of Carolina near his heart. Roberto Clemente was know for his philanthropic efforts and unfortunately died on his way to deliver relief supplies after an earthquake ravaged Nicaragua.
