As the hobby has become more specialized, player collectors who compete for the top cards have expanded their horizons and sought out obscure food, advertisement, and foreign issues. As a result, cards that were ignored or even unknown to hobbyists a mere decade ago are now the objects of fierce competition between well-heeled sports card enthusiasts. The offered card of the legendary Roberto Clemente hails from the under-the-radar 1965 MacGregor Sporting Goods set. This crisp and clean example has been graded Mint 9 by PSA, and is one of just two copies to reach this plateau, which is the highest mark PSA has awarded to this or any of the ten cards in this relatively obscure set. The pride of the island of Puerto Rico, Clemente stands alongside Mantle, Mays, Koufax, and Aaron as the most-collected players from baseball's Golden Age. We guarantee that this simple yet stunning card of the Pittsburgh Pirates Hall of Famer is near the top of numerous collectors' want lists. We also guarantee you will not see another like it for a long time, perhaps ever, on the open market. Do not miss out.
