    Description

    1955 Topps Roberto Clemente #164 PSA Fair 1.5 (MC). He gave his Pittsburgh fans the pleasure of witnessing his 3,000th career hit before giving his life in a tragic airplane accident during the subsequent off-season 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 the fallen twelve-time Gold Glover along with Monte Irvin, George Kelly and Warren Spahn as members of the 1973 induction class.

    It all began here, during the 1955 season that would introduce not only one of the sport's greatest players, but one of its greatest men. Clemente is one of two elite stars to make his debut in this important issue, the first Topps breed to feature a landscape format.

    Offered is a 1955 Topps Roberto Clemente #164 that PSA graded PSA Fair 1.5 (MC).

    Auction Type
    Sunday Internet Sports: These auctions are presented only online and bidding is only taken through our website. 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) 15 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 15 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 10:03, the new end time for that lot would become 10:18. If no other bids were placed before 10:18, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 15 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 10:15. 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.
