While many collectors have tried to complete signed 1964 Topps Giants sets through the years, they continue to hit a wall when it comes to that elusive last card: Roberto Clemente. Sure, there are other tough ones in the set, but they can be found with some due diligence; but not Clemente. For various reasons, this card has stumped signed set collectors over and over...until now. Here's a beautiful 1964 Topps Giants Clemente card signed by the late HOFer in blue ballpoint pen. And while Clemente normally seemed to have a knack for signing on a dark portion of most cards and photos, he signed this one over his white jersey with a high-grade signature. The crisp signature is authenticated and slabbed by PSA/DNA and is the only one we've ever seen. Prepare to bid aggressively if you want to finally complete your set.
