September is Clemente-mber here at Baseball Card Breakdown!
Roberto Clemente is one of my all-time favorite ballplayers, and I'm not alone on that. Heck of a man, both on and off the field. An inspiration and hero to pure-hearted boys, girls, men, and women everywhere.
Continuing my ongoing project of posting my main PCs, here are the Roberto Clemente cards I own. I'll link this on my wantlist so prospective traders can have an idea of what I have/need.
Here's a photo of the latest additions to my collection, splurging for a few vintage cards this past week. (Honestly, it was while drafting up this post that I realized I don't have nearly enough vintage Clementes and had to rectify that):
Not in the best shape, but I'm still happy to have 'em!
Here are the other vintage Clementes I already had:
That's all I got as of September 2o14.
I'm up for trading for any others that aren't listed here, preferably vintage, though it's always cool getting a modern Clemente card thrown in with a trade package, too.
1955 Topps (RC)
I'm pretty amazed I only need 9 more cards to have Roberto Clemente's base flagship Topps run! Never thought I'd see the day I was anywhere near that. Just to pick up his 1973 Topps card a few years back was pretty special. In fact, I think that was the pickup that woke me up from my extended collecting hiatus.
