    Description

    1956 Topps Roberto Clemente (White Back) #33 SGC VG 3. Roberto Clemente lived a hero to the thousands of Pittsburgh fans as a physical wonder who possessed an enormous amount of natural talent and an obvious passion for the game. He died a hero to the people of Nicaragua for his selfless efforts to help the poor and impoverish after a devastating 6.2 magnitude earthquake and a pair of aftershocks that claimed 6,000 lives and left 250,000 homeless, his body forever lost at sea following the crash of his overloaded earthquake relief plane in the coastal waters of his native Puerto Rico. Already guaranteed baseball immortality through his eighteen brilliant seasons of Major League service and his newly-minted key to the 3,000 Hit Clubhouse, Roberto Clemente achieved the closest thing to baseball sainthood that tragic last day of 1972.

    Offered is a 1956 Topps Roberto Clemente (White Back) #33 graded SGC VG 3.
