1955 Topps #164 Roberto Clemente Rookie SGC EX/NM+ 82

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,700

Graded EX/NM+ 82 by SGC. Extremely attractive high-grade example of Roberto Clemente's rookie card. One of card collecting's greatest classics, Clemente's rookie card is the key to the 1955 Topps set, and one of the most popular of all postwar baseball cards. This striking example is bright and clean, both front and back, with four square corners showing light, even wear, and strong colors and gloss. The image is centered very slightly to the right, which is particularly exceptional for this card as it is so often subject to extremely serious centering problems. This is a very attractive EX/NM+ Roberto Clemente rookie card, one of the most important of all classic 1950s cards. The equivalent SMR value in EX-MT is $1,500. SOLD FOR $2,700
