Graded MINT 9 by PSA. Presented is a stunning ultra high-grade rookie card of Hall of Famer Roberto Clemente, one of the keys to the 1955 Topps set and one of the most famous of all Topps cards. Only one example grade higher out of 5,505 cards evaluated by PSA to date. This card is extraordinary in every way, with a flawless image, brilliant colors, outstanding centering (just a hint to the right), and four sharp corners. The centering is particularly exceptional for this card, which is so often subject to extremely serious centering problems. Clean reverse. High-grade examples of Clemente's rookie in MINT 9 condition have proven elusive to collectors in recent memory, with nearly two years having passed since a card graded at this level has appeared at public auction. This is the finest example we have ever offered! This is a tremendous card of the key rookie from this popular 1950s Topps set, which would make an outstanding addition to any complete set, Hall of Fame rookie card, or Roberto Clemente collection. Opening Bid $100,000. Estimate (open).
