1955 Topps Baseball #164 Roberto Clemente (Rookie Hall of Famer), PSA 7.5 NM+
One of the Most Important Rookie Cards Issued During the Golden Age of Baseball!
This listing is for the rookie card of Pittsburgh Pirates right fielder and Hall of Famer, Roberto Clemente. One of the most popular and collected players in the hobby, Clemente was a humanitarian in addition to being one of the greatest players of all-time. The native Puerto Rican’s life was cut short when he died at age 38 in a plane crash while on a relief mission to Nicaragua, as he and two others were delivering supplies to earthquake victims. Only a few months earlier, Clemente began working on a sports city for the youngsters of his native San Juan in Puerto Rico. The Baseball Writers Association held a special election following Clemente’s death and waived the five year waiting period for Hall of Fame enshrinement. On August 6, 1973, Roberto Clemente was the first Latin American and Caribbean player inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Centered and one of only nineteen examples graded PSA NM+ 7.5, a spectacular example of this key rookie issue!
