This is just the third Jacobellis Collection shot of Clemente to reach the auction block, with both predecessors having sold for upwards of $1,000. The Great One's bright future lies ahead as he follows though with all his might at the Polo Grounds. It's an intimate moment between a young legend and a master photographer—both in their prime. Clemente's name is notated on the front and reverse. Beautifully preserved, crease-free 4x5 surface with very few surface scratches along the top.
