Let's take a moment to show some respect...

On this day 45 years ago, Roberto Clemente hit his 3,000th career in his final career at bat.

No baseball player is more beloved in Pittsburgh than Roberto Clemente.  No Latin American is more beloved than Roberto Clemente.

There's good reason for that.

Roberto Clemente had a famous quote "any time you have the opportunity to make a difference in this world and you don't, then you are wasting your time on Earth."

Let's all emulate Roberto Clemente today and do something good for someone else today.

Thank you and God Bless!

Above was an original piece of art by Wilfredo Santiago that was used in the graphic novel "21".

As many of you know, I used to collect comic books and loved to get sketches from the artists at comic book conventions too.  When the opportunity presented itself to own the most iconic image of Clemente from the comic, I had to own the original.

Tomorrow and all October long, we will be having a new feature to Collecting Cutch.


  1. Wow. Sweet sketch! I enjoy collecting Clemente stuff. I have a 70's oddball issue of him featured next week. Stay tuned.

    1. P.S. Love that quote! Might need to put that one up in my classroom.

  2. Thanks everyone. When Wilfredo agreed to put the page up for auction, I had to own it. Such a beautiful image of a human being that is an inspiration to the world.
