(LOT 111)
1972 Topps #310 Roberto Clemente In Action PSA 10 GEM MINT

GEM MINT CLEMENTE!!! This 1972 Topps #310 Roberto Clemente In Action turned out to be his final card while he was still playing. Baseball suffered a significant loss both on and off the field when Clemente died in a plane crash amidst a humanitarian effort to bring aid to the earthquake-devastated Nicaragua. However, in true Clemente fashion, Roberto notched his 3,000th hit on September 30th, 1972, fulfilling one of his personal goals. He passed away only three months later. Memory Lane is excited to be offering this GEM MINT 10 card of Roberto Clemente from the 1972 Topps release. Almost 50 years old, this card managed to get into this PSA 10 GEM MINT holder and you can see why as this is perfectly framed within a superb white border. Edging and corners remain razor-sharp, and the color is astoundingly bright as Clemente watches a strike slip past him. This one is well worthy of its lofty status and owning the highest graded card in the hobby is sure to elevate even the best of sets.

MIN BID $2,000
