    Description

    1955 Topps Roberto Clemente #164 PSA EX-MT 6. We can't imagine any Pittsburgh fan who had the pleasure of witnessing his 3,000th career hit could have guessed it would be his final farewell to baseball. Just a few months after that fateful moment Clemente gave his life in a tragic airplane accident 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 the fallen twelve-time Gold Glover for the 1973 HoF induction class. Offered is the card that would mark the bright beginning of a tell-tale baseball story for the ages. Of the hundreds of cards on which Clemente is featured, none are coveted more than his 1955 rookie card. Offered is a very clean and sharp example graded PSA EX-MT 6.
