Without the presence of a Mickey Mantle card (and even if there was one), the Roberto Clemente rookie card is hands down the most significant issue of the 1955 Topps set given the immense popularity of the Puerto Rican sensation. With NM/MT examples out of reach for even many advanced collectors, the featured SGC 84 NM 7 example offers a lot of those NM/MT qualities at a much better price point. Though positioned toward the southwest horizontal corner, more common that not for the issue, the card offers deep, clean red and green pigmentation with all four corners contained within the NM to NM/MT range. Not many NM Clemente rookie cards can compete with this beauty for overall perimeter strength.
