Default Complete Clemente -- What's missing?

I'm trying to acquire every Roberto Clemente card, coin and stamp from when he was a player. I'm up to 71 items now. I don't have any of his Bazooka cards (man, they are expensive!) or the rare 1967 Topps stickers or the 1962 Canadian Post cereal card that's in English and French. What else am I missing?

Howard is our resident Clemente master collector. I just did Topps, Bowman and Fleer.

For Fleer his extension Fleer World Series 1971 card is a little tough.

For Topps his 68 3D card is tough to find and expensive. Same for his 67 and 68 Discs, and his 68 Plaq and image on the Plaq checklist. I think Howard also has the rare 67 Pin Up that was a prototype to the issued version. The 67 Stand Up is very tough and expensive as well

Less tough are the 69 Topps Pirates Team Poster and the Topps 1968 Action Sticker Clemente. You mentioned the 67 Pirates Stickers.

But Howard is the guy you need to chime in on this. If you are sticking to cards or items actually issued at retail as opposed to unissued or limited distribution test issues, it is a little easier.

Thanks for the feedback, Jason and Al! I quickly realized I'm only scratching the surface.

I'm not quite sure where to draw the line between cards and postcards/photos. And there's the whole poster issue. I do have the 1967 Dexter Press 5x7 photo/card and the 1971 Arco 8x10 photo and will probably eventually go down that road...

Happy hunting on the Brock stuff! Not sure how true this is with Brock, but with Clemente on eBay you run into a ton of reprints and tribute cards that Im not interested in. (I was for awhile and amassed about 200 posthumous Clemente cards before deciding it was too much to keep up with.) I met Brock once a couple years after he retired and he seemed like a really decent guy.

Check out the year of Lou Brock thread I have about 300 or more unique items I'm sure Clemente is close to that

There's the various coke caps, and the saver sheets.

And a set that's really similar to the east hills set but with no mall ad Maybe a picture pack thing?

My favorites are the Sugardale and the Topps test issues (standup, disc, plaq and punchout). The 1958 Kahns is extremely tough to find.
