I Told You I Would Finish That 1997 Topps Gold Roberto Clemente Set…
I told you, I told you…
At the baseball card show that I attended back in January, I was able to grab 4 of 5 cards from a 1997 Topps Gold tribute set that celebrated the career of Roberto Clemente. At the time, I did not know that the set was just 5 cards deep, but I thought that being able to purchase cards 1-4 was a pretty solid start.
When I returned home from the show, I did a little homework and learned that the card was indeed just 5 cards deep.
And then I made it a collecting mission of mine to nab.
And I was able to grab RC5, the fifth card, two weeks ago and I posted about it here.
Now, the set is complete. And it looks great!!
Check it out:
I have to say that the set was very easy to piece together and I am especially proud to honor the career of Mr. Clemente in this way.
I wish that there were more of these kinds of sets out there – they are right up this collector’s alley!
