Description

    1963 Topps Roberto Clemente #540 PSA Mint 9. Just one glance at this card and you can tell why the 1963 Topps series is a hobby classic. The dual portraits inspired by the 1954 and 1956 Topps Baseball series (also classics) issued a decade prior return to inspire a new generation of baseball card collectors. 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, but in all seriousness over half a century has since passed if that can be believed. The exceptional surfaces and gloss quality, four razor sharp corners all combine for a PSA Mint 9 assessment. Only two of the now over 2,000 PSA submissions have earned a higher rating with thirty-three graded PSA Mint 9. An absolutely stunning display of color and quality undoubtedly worthy of the hobbyist who only wants the finest.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $4,000 - up.

    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.
