(LOT 86)
1963 Fleer #56 Roberto Clemente PSA 10 GEM MINT

PERFECT CLEMENTE!!! Presented here is an extremely rare PSA 10 GEM MINT 1963 Fleer #56 Clemente subject, one of only four such PSA examples! The 1963 season would see Clemente eclipse the .300 mark for the fourth consecutive campaign, with his robust .320 batting average and third successive Gold Glove Award rightfully earning him his seventh All-Star game appearance. One of Clemente's most desirable issues has always been his 1963 Fleer card, let alone one boasting a "perfect" PSA 10 assessment. The immortal Clemente will always be best remembered for his heart-wrenching death when, after the 1972 season, his plane crashed carrying supplies to assist earthquake victims in Nicaragua. This breathtaking offering truly merits its GEM MINT assessment via the Clemente sparkling image, pristine surfaces, blinding white borders, right-angled corners and absolutely dead-on 50/50 centering, with this extraordinary keepsake serving as the perfect testament for one of baseball's pinnacle Cooperstown heroes!

MIN BID $2,500
