Autographed 1957 Topps #76 Roberto Clemente
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $2,320.00
1957 Topps #76 Roberto Clemente features a flawless, bold red-ink ballpoint 1950s vintage signature. This is an extraordinary signature example. The signature has been graded MINT 9 by PSA. Clemente-signed cards are almost nonexistent. He is, in fact, one of the rarest of all modern legends to find signed on a baseball card. This is a beautiful example worthy of the most advanced autographed card or Clemente collection. It would be virtually impossible to find a more impressive signed example of Clemente's classic 1957 Topps card. While this is, of course, an extremely rare card to find signed at all, the dark tones of the portrait photograph on this card make only a red ink signature (as found here) ideal for signing. The card is exceptionally bright and crisp, centered 20/80 top to bottom, otherwise in Vg-Ex condition. This very popular card of Clemente is, of course, extremely rare to find signed. This is the first we have had. LOAs from James Spence/JSA and Steve Grad, Mike Gutierrez & Zach Rullo/PSA DNA. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $2,320.00
