This 1956 Topps Roberto Clemente (white back) card features a magnificent blue ballpoint-ink 1950s vintage signature of the legendary star on the front. Encapsulated by PSA, with the signature labeled "Authentic". Clemente signed cards are exceedingly rare, and this is very first signed example of his 1956 Topps card that we have ever offered. Other examples of the signed 1956 Topps Clemente have appeared at auction and realized final sales prices far in excess of $10,000. The offered card is an exceptional example, featuring a great Clemente last-name-only signature, as was common for Latin players in the early/mid-1950’s. We cannot express how scarce Clemente’s autograph is on a card, making it worthy of any advanced Clemente, autograph, or signed baseball-card collection. The card, which displays no creases, has modest corner wear, as well as two very tiny areas of abrasion. It should be noted that a piece of tape was placed over the Clemente autograph (as was common in the 1950's) to preserve the signature. The card appears to be in Very Good to Excellent condition overall. This both a rare and highly desirable signed Clemente card dating from his second season in the majors. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA Authentic
