    1968 Topps Roberto Clemente #150 SGC 98 Gem 10 - The Ultimate SGC Example, Pop One! 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 widely 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. Naturally, collectors pursue his collectible with an enthusiasm match by few other athletes.

    Offered is Roberto Clemente's card from the 1968 Topps baseball series. Graded SGC 98 Gem 10! This card is currently the one and only "98 Gem" from a total population of almost 400 submissions. This card is almost beyond compare and for all intents and purposes is 100% uncirculated. Of the 22,000 cards from this set graded by SGC, fewer than 1% have earned the "Gem" rating from SGC. For the Clemente or 1968 fan who only wants the best for his/her collection.
