Roberto Clemente 2014 Topps Archives
Now this is what I am talking about.
If you read my post the other night about the new Archives card of Frank Robinson, you recall that since the card design that was used for Robinson’s card was issued during his playing days, I thought that the image should be linked more closely to the time. But, it was not.
So, I suggested that the card would either be better had it featured an era-appropriate image or shift Robinson to a design that was issued after his playing days were done so there were ‘No Rules’.
Well, when Topps designed the Roberto Clemente card for the set, they nailed it.
Have a look:
The card design for the card is from the 1980 Topps set. Obviously, this set was released well after Clemente’s playing days so using any image works.
I LOVE IT!!
And it is a ‘Batting Cage Card’ too!
