#21 Roberto Clemente - "Bob" - 9" x 12" Acrylic on paper. Played 18 seasons with the Pirates, 12 times and All-Star, MVP in 1966, 4 times he lead the NL in hitting, won 12 Gold Gloves, and had exactly 3000 hits. Died tragically in plane crash in 1972 at the age of 38. This was a no-doubter. Roger Clemens and Sammy Sosa are two others to wear 21 - both tainted by PED's. The Braves Warren Spahn had his number retired in 1965 by Milwaukee so no Atlanta player ever got to wear 21. Who will get the nod at #20?
