Graded MINT 9 by PSA. Hall of Famer, in his Rookie Card appearance. This is one of just eleven examples at its tier (with just one, single specimen graded higher) among a total of nearly 5,700 copies recorded in PSA's census reporting. This cherished Clemente collectible was included in the somewhat more difficult "high number" segment of the 1955 Topps issue. Although the personable outfielder's career was tragically abbreviated, his dual legacy of baseball greatness and humanitarian generosity remains immortal. This example of the heroic figure's debut Topps card would be an indisputable highlight in any collection. Its marvelously well-calibrated centering provides an ideal, snow-white framing of Clemente's portrait and batting stance. His bold facsimile signature and the colorful Pirates' logo enhance the item's lovely aesthetic. Clemente's facial image is compelling in its ideally focused presentation, and the cardfront's bright colors, in general, are second to none. The corners form impeccable right angles culminating in lethal points, and the piece's reverse displays just the right measure of light and attractive, even toning. Rare and fascinating Mint condition.
