Description1955 Topps Roberto Clemente #164 PSA VG-EX 4. Had history not intervened, Roberto Clemente would have worn Brooklyn Dodger blue instead of the Pittsburgh Pirates uniform of which now seems to be attire he was born to wear. He would go on to play for 18 seasons in the Steel City and collected exactly 3,000 hits. The now iconic Hall of Fame outfielder made his rookie card debut in the 1955 Topps series as part of the final run of high numbers. Graded PSA VG-EX 4 with terrific colors and modest corner tip wear.
Guide Value or Estimate: $3,000 - up.
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.
