    Description

    1955 Topps Roberto Clemente #164 PSA EX-MT 6. Just a few months after belting out the 3,000th hit of his career, Roberto Clemente gave his life in a tragic airplane accident while on a humanitarian aid mission to Nicaragua. Like the noble Lou Gehrig before him, baseball waived the standard five-year waiting period for Hall of Fame enshrinement, honoring him as a member of the 1973 HoF induction class. Offered is his rookie card debut and the most coveted of the numerous cards on which he is featured. Solid example with terrific centering. A slight stray mark of cyan ink as seen in the bottom border seems to have determined the final grade. Graded PSA EX-MT 6.
