Graded VG-EX+ 4.5 by PSA. Extremely strong mid-grade example of Roberto Clemente's rookie card. One of card collecting's greatest classics, Clemente's rookie card is the key to the 1955 Topps set, and one of the most popular of all postwar baseball cards. This card is bright and clean, both front and back, with light, even wear at the corners (a bit more at the upper right), and strong colors and gloss. The card exhibits centering slightly toward the bottom. A light wrinkle across the lower left corner accounts for the technically accurate assigned grade. This is a very attractive example of Roberto Clemente’s rookie card, one of the most important of all classic 1950s cards. Reserve $400. Estimate $1,000+.
