1955 Topps #164 Roberto Clemente Rookie PSA NM 7
Starting Bid - $500.00 , Sold For - $3,525.00
Graded NM 7 by PSA. 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 Clemente rookie. This is a stunning example. When we sent this in, we were hoping it might be worthy of a NM-MT 8. It is certainly a very strong NM 7. The card exhibits vibrant colors, four razor-sharp corners, perfect registration, and no print lines whatsoever. The image is centered just a hint to the left border (approximately 45/55), 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 tremendous high-grade example of Roberto Clemente’s rookie card, one of the most important of all classic 1950s cards. The SMR value for the assigned grade is $2,200. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $3,525.00
