    Description

    1955 Topps Roberto Clemente #164 PSA NM 7. The folks at Topps turned the baseball world on its ear for 1955, abandoning the portrait format that dominating the hobby since its inception for a landscape design that provided exciting new options for company artists. Yet this pioneering distinction tends to be an afterthought for collectors today, whose primary association with the Eisenhower-era issue is the rookie debut of two of the most beloved Cooperstown residents. Presented is a high-grade example of the rarer of the pair, as Sandy Koufax is more than twice as plentiful as the Clemente debut in the PSA population report at this lofty rating.

    Bright color, tight registration and a glossy surface provide elite visual appeal here, with just the slightest touches at the corners the primary obstacle to an even higher grade. Those investors considering national demographics have reason for optimism in the future pricing of a card featuring the Hall of Fame's first Latino inductee, and the recent sales history has substantiated that upward trend.
