Graded NM-MT+ 8.5 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 twelve examples grade higher out of 5,587 cards evaluated by PSA to date. This card is extraordinary in every way, bordering on MINT condition, with a flawless image, brilliant colors, near-perfect centering (just a hint toward the bottom 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. The market for ultra-high-grade 1955 Topps #164 Clemente rookies has soared to new levels, with a 2018 sale of $264,000 reported for a PSA MINT 9 example. This is one of the finest examples 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. Reserve $25,000. Estimate (open).
