Roberto Clemente 1997 Topps Gold ‘A Tribute To Roberto Clemente’ Card #RC5
You may recall that at the baseball card show that I attended in January I scored four of five cards from a special Roberto Clemente tribute set issued by Topps.
You can re-read that post here.
At the time of that purchase,I had no idea of the size of the full set I just happened to have found the four cards together in a bargain bin and really liked the look of the cards and the Golden accents from the design.
Well, I paid just $1.00 for those four cards and I was off to the start of a very affordable commemorative set that honors Hall of Famer Roberto Clemente.
And now, I have secured card #5, the last one of the set.
Have a look:
I bought this one from a seller on Sportlots when I was doing some PC shopping. And while I paid the same amount for this one that I paid for the other four combined, I am happy to bring it home.
The card shows a great action shot of Clemente getting ready to fire a ball into the infield. And the backdrop of the Puerto Rico flag is a very solid, yet subtle, addition to the card.
