(LOT 77)
1961 Topps #388 Roberto Clemente PSA 9 MINT

PACK-FRESH ROBERTO!!! Presented here is a spectacular PSA 9 MINT 1961 Topps #388 Roberto Clemente, bested by only two PSA examples! It is not an overstatement to claim that the legendary Roberto Clemente will forever be worshiped by the Hispanic baseball community at a similar level that Jackie Robinson was by the African American community. The Cooperstown inductee's accomplishments include a .317 lifetime batting average, 3,000 career hits, the 1966 regular season MVP award, four batting titles, 12 consecutive Gold Glove Awards, and two world championships. His tragic death on New Year's Eve 1972 via a plane crash into the Atlantic while carrying supplies to assist earthquake victims in Nicaragua claimed his life at the tender age of 38. This offering's highlights include a brilliant portrait Clemente pose exhibiting near-perfect centering, impeccable surfaces, sparkling hues, and razor-sharp corner tips, with the only imperfection being a somewhat rough right-edge factory cut. A magnificent Clemente memento from the very condition-sensitive 1961 Topps set!

MIN BID $1,500
