Baseball Card Show Purchase #7 – 4/5 Cards From The 1997 Topps Roberto Clemente Commemorative Set
I bought these four cards from the same seller that I picked up the 1989 Topps Andre Dawson coin from.
As I mentioned in that post, his table was full of vintage oddball stuff - and I rummaged through a majority of it.
I came across these four cards of Roberto Clemente and I was immediately intrigued.
Have a look:
Upon reviewing the cards, I saw that they were numbered as RC1, RC2, RC3, and RC4. I immediately wanted to know if I had a full set, but the dealer did not know. Still, I bought them all with the goal of learning more when I got home and was able to get online.
Well, research shows that this is a 5-card set. They were randomly inserted into packs of 1997 Topps Series 1 and Series 2. And they are not that rare – you could find one in every twelve packs.
As for card #5, I will have to seek it out so I can complete my set!
