1955 Topps #164 Roberto Clemente Rookie SGC NM 84

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $4,740

Graded NM 84 by SGC. Stellar pack-fresh example of this classic rookie card featuring Hall of Famer Roberto Clemente. Every short list of the most popular and classic of all 1950s baseball cards includes the Clemente rookie. The card exhibits vibrant colors, four strong corners, perfect registration, and no print lines whatsoever. The image is almost perfectly centered, which is particularly exceptional for this card, which is so often subject to extremely serious centering problems. Perfectly crisp and clean, both front and back, and with perfect gloss. This is a stunning example of Roberto Clemente’s rookie card, one of the most important of all classic 1950s cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $4,740
