The 1955 Topps Roberto Clemente rookie card is simply one of the most important, most sought after post-World War II baseball cards in the hobby.  Not only does it represent one of the 20th century’s most beloved players whose life was tragically cut short, it’s also one of the key cards in the ’55 set, and one of the most beautiful Topps cards ever produced.

A couple of weeks ago, we had six cards
