Roberto Clemente 2001 Upper Deck – UD Decade 1970′s
I recently picked up a few cards of the guys that I collect from the 2001 Upper Deck ‘Decades’ set.
This set features very lively colors and border designs in both the regular set and in all of the subsets. These cards are very easy to identify due to the coloring, and they also work very well with the 1970′s theme due to the loud colors and zany fonts that are littered throughout the set.
This is the card of Roberto Clemente from the base set:
The Blue and Green have nothing to do with the colors of the Pittsburgh Pirates, but that is exactly what this set is all about – loud and in your face colors!
The only thing that could make this card better would be if the United States flag that is flying over Clemente’s left shoulder was replaced with one that features the colors of Puerto Rico.
A great looking card right here!!
