Description1973 Topps Roberto Clemente #50 PSA Gem Mint 10. It had been mere months after baseball legend Roberto Clemente passed away on December 31, 1972 when baseball fans and society at large would be introduced to a card they would have never have guest would have such significance. Clemente was a staple in every Topps series since 1955. While a "last" card that marks retirement is inevitable, this card is a memorial to his talents on the field and heroics off the field. This card will always be so much more than just another card that fills in a pocket of a plastic sheet.
Graded PSA Gem MT 10. The highest quality in all regards. A fitting state of preservation for a beloved icon never to be forgotten. This is one of only seven examples graded GEM MINT from a total population that now surpasses 5,300 placing it among the top one-fifth of one percent finest known!
Guide Value or Estimate: $10,000 - up.
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.
