1955 Topps #164 Roberto Clemente PSA NM 7

Starting Bid - $2,000, Sold For - $10,200

Graded NM 7 by PSA (submitted by REA). Stellar pack-fresh example of this classic rookie card of Hall of Famer Roberto Clemente. Every short list of the most popular and classic of all 1950s baseball cards includes the 1955 Topps Clemente rookie. This is a stunning example that in our opinion would not look out of place in a higher grade. The card exhibits vibrant colors, four sharp corners, perfect registration, and no print lines. The image is almost perfectly centered, which is particularly noteworthy 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 tremendous high-grade example of Roberto Clemente’s rookie card, one of the most important of all classic 1950s cards.  Reserve $2,000. Estimate $4,000+. SOLD FOR $10,200
