Default Let's See Your Clemente Cards

Same as the Robinson thread, one per day, and let's see how long we can play. I will start with one of my childhood cards:

One of my favorite players.

This one's at PSA right now. Anyone want to guess the grade? I'm hoping for a 6.

Default Really?!

The core of my collecting interest! This will be fun. The hard part will be only 1 per day!!

Okay. Hmm. Where to start.

How about a rare 1957 Pirate Team issue. Still shaking my head as to how/why it was graded a 2!

Spelling "Yastrzemski" correctly without needing to look it up since the 1980's.

Don't feel bad. Mine is graded a PSA 2 also, it looks like a 5 or 6. Here is my favorite. It came from Woody Gelman's collection.

Does anyone know: was he called Bob in his personal life? Everytime I see "Bob Clemente" it just looks odd to me.

Pirates announcer Bob Prince would call him Bobby or sometimes Bob. He also gave him the nickname Arriba. The others just used it as an insult like sportswriters who would quote him phonetically to mock his accent.

Default One for today

Another near impossible card in any condition - This is 1 of 2 highest graded. Bought it many years ago from John Rumirez and wish I could find more at many multiples of what I "overpaid" at the time!

Sweet, Venezuelan!! I've yet to find that "overpaying" for a rarity was ever true for very long if at all.

This isn't a card, but I thought it would be worth posting in the event a few of you didn't see this when I picked it up a almost a year back.

Note he signed it "Bob Clemente", and I haven't seen too many items signed that way, though I have seen a few.
Does that add to the value? I might not say that, as many prefer "Roberto" over "Bob". Certainly adds to the "uniqueness" though.

Was super stoked to add this item when I did...... and I still have it.
I kind of think its like owning a little piece of history.



1957 Cards/Pirates signed scorecard.

Signed by BILL MAZEROSKI
BOB PURKEY
BOB SKINNER
BUDDY PRITCHARD
DON BLASINGAME
ED KASKO
JOE TRIMBLE
JOHNNY O'BRIEN
KEN BOYER
KEN HAMLIN
ROBERTO CLEMENTE
ROMAN MEIJAS
VERNON LAW X2

Bill Mazeroski signed at the top middle, and Clemente down along the bottom right.

Default Nice cards all!

Bob - Some tough in grade beauties you are posting there!

Floyd - Super tough Exhibit - took an offer that I "couldn't" refuse years ago on mine and am still looking to replace it!

and one for today:

Okay, so technically 2, but they are both tough high grade 1971 OPC's - both tough high numbers in any condition.

Here is a Clemente with others from a 1962 Post Cereal Super Market display. And a photo of what the display looked like. But you can't see the Clemente in the photos. Note the display at the top of the photo

I dig rough cuts, so my eyes about popped out of my head when I saw this and I had to buy it:
