    Description

    1963 Topps Roberto Clemente #540 PSA Gem Mint 10 - Pop Two. Obviously, every hobbyist has a passion for what they collect. While we all want it all if we could, many hobbyists focus on one particular era, or one brand or assemble just one or two sets at the highest quality possible. Some have a passion for just one player and that is what we have here. The "Slusser Collection" is a gallery of the finest examples of Roberto Clemente cards on the planet. His Topps run ranks #1 on the PSA Set Registry with a startling GPA of 9.43! Each card is of such uncompromising quality as one views card after card one cannot help but be in awe at what is so much more than a baseball collection but a trip into baseball history in the form of one of the game's greatest ambassadors.

    The 1963 Topps series is a hobby classic. The dual portraits inspired by the 1956 Topps Baseball series issued some eight years prior. From an era when cards were issued in series, Clemente is a key addition to the scarcer final run appearing on card #540 of the 576-card promotion. With every indication the card was made yesterday, over half a century has since passed of that can be believed. The exception surfaces and gloss quality, four razor sharp corners and precision centering all combine for a PSA Gem MT 10 assessment that only two of the now over 1,750 PSA submissions can only dream about. It offers a stunning display and one undoubtedly worthy of the hobbyist who only wants the finest.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
