Description

    1968 Topps 3-D Test Roberto Clemente SGC 80 EX/NM 6. The late-1960's and early 1970's was a very productive era for Topps who tested various projects utilizing a wide assortment of treatments and formats to enhance sales. A full two years before Kellogg's picked up the "Xograph" technology that gave cards a 3-Dimensional appearance, Topps test marketed an extremely limited number of cards of a dozen players, the key subject is Roberto Clemente. Cards are found with a blank back or with a stamp saying cards are not for resale and returned to Visual Panographics, Inc. These cards are found so rarely it is very likely they never saw any distribution beyond the Topps offices. The offered copy of Clemente is in fantastic condition except for a short crack in the top layer (a very common fault with this design) which seems to fully account for the SGC 80 EX/NM 6 assessment. A prized Clemente collectible from one of the rarest Topps Test issues of the late 1960's.
