Description

    1963 Fleer Roberto Clemente #56 PSA Gem Mint 10. Only the "Slusser Collection" of Roberto Clemente cards that was ranked #1 "All-Time Finest" status on the PSA Set Registry could contain a card of uncompromising quality. That being said we are very pleased to be able to offer another that fits that very description.

    When the Hall of Fame outfielder was tragically killed in an airplane crash while engaged in a humanitarian aid mission for the earthquake-stricken western coast of Nicaragua, his career tally was finalized at an even 3,000. A fitting plateau considering this figure is considered the hallmark of greatness. Every individual hit of Roberto Clemente's career turned out to be a pivotal notch in his athletic achievement. While there is no doubt that Clemente's eighteen-year Major League career would have easily justified Hall of Fame enshrinement without that round number, the Hit Club would be a lesser place with his absence.

    Offered is one of the finest known Roberto Clemente's card from the 1963 Fleer Baseball series. Graded PSA Gem MT 10! This card is currently one of just four examples graded Gem MT from a total population of almost 1,800 submissions. We could go into a lengthy description but uncompromising quality resonates from every characteristic, our posted image will speak the 1,000 words for us.

    Auction Type
    Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
