1956 Topps Roberto Clemente
Clemente is by far the hardest Pirate to collect. If you search for his cards on eBay you can see very quickly that demand and prices are high. Before blogging I only had a couple cards of the Pirate legend.
Thanks to great trade partners I've slowly accumulated a respectable Clemente collection. The beauty pictured above was courtesy of the greatest French baseball card blogger in the world, Kevin aka The Card Papoy. Talk about a one card bombing!
The card itself is in fair condition. The centering is off and the corners are a little rounded, but that just adds character. You really hooked me up big time Kevin! I was blown away when I opened the bubble envelope. Just something about seeing Clemente cards that really makes me excited about collecting cards. Obviously I love modern cards, but star vintage cards are just on another level.
Thanks for reading!
