(LOT 175)
1970 Topps #350 Signed Roberto Clemente PSA 8 NM-MT AUTO GRADE

Total Autographed Pop: 7; Total "Unsigned" Pop: 4,326; Var.% (Signed vs. Unsigned Pop): 0.16%
The legendary Roberto Clemente continued his dominance of National league pitchers in 1970, with his staggering .352 batting average and impressive .963 OPS residing near the top of the charts. Although he would be plagued by nagging injuries, he would still accumulate over 400 official "at-bats" and claim his 10th consecutive Gold-Glove Award. As a definitive testament for his continued excellence, Topps chose checklist number #350 for Clemente's 1970 subject, and it is that card we now offer with a super eye pleasing "Best Wishes - Roberto Clemente" signature. The neatly scripted blue ink autograph and inscription has been affixed across Roberto's classic Pirates jersey, with PSA rightfully awarding the signature with an "8 NM-MT" assessment. The card presents itself in a solid "VG" to "VG-EX" manner, with no obtrusive flaws on either side. Of utmost significance is the overall scarcity of a signed 1970 Topps issue, with this "Pop 7" offering representing a fractional 0.16% of the 4,300+ Unsigned specimens handled by the prestigious PSA card graders!
