    1955 Topps Roberto Clemente #164 PSA NM-MT 8.
    A card that exudes greatness from every fiber, this debut-year portrayal of Roberto Clemente is the hobby's favorite memento of the future Cooperstown enshrinee. With its photo-quality portrait, a glimpse of the outfielder's batting stance, and an artful background of dark green fading to light, it's a true thing of beauty.

    Superficially, Clemente's card isn't physically partitioned from the also-rans with which it shares inclusion in the '55 Topps set but carries an unmistakable grandeur that's immediately apparent. It's all about the intangibles and, with a well-earned nod to the rock-solid stature that Clemente would go on to build, this collectible has those in abundance.

    Graded PSA NM-MT 8. Though a mere fifteen account for in the item's expansive 3,300+ piece census place nominally higher, the offered specimen commands kudos for its seemingly impeccable presentation and its wholly uncirculated state of presentation. As expected, the card's corners, surfaces, gloss and printing adhere to a superior standard. Deliberately intense scrutiny discloses a complete absence of the print specks that often plague the issue. With the value of Mint 9 examples reaching levels few can entertain, a card so close to that coveted plateau for a percentage of that value seems like a particularly enticing opportunity.
