Roberto Clemente, A Giant Among Men...

Today's Nitty Gritty Card of the Day comes from current favorite set, 1964 Topps Giants. The set is getting closer and closer to completion, thanks to a lot of help from my friends. You can view my current wantlist HERE. Naturally this is my favorite card in the set. It is card #11 and celebrates Clemente winning the batting title in 1961 with a .351 average. I won't ruin it with my words, just bask in the beauty of an oversized card of one of the Greatest to ever play the game... If I can ever find time and a scanner I have about 15 new cards to post from this glorious set. I love this hobby! 46 years, LATER!
