Card #21: Retired Numbers

I have had this Clemente for a long time.  I think I got it shortly after release from a blogger named Trey and even showed it off on my old blog.

Roberto Clemente is one of the few numbers retired by the Pirates.  The others include
1-Billy Meyer
4 - Ralph Kiner
8-Willie Stargell
9-Bill Mazeroski
11 - Paul Waner
33 - Honus Wagner
42 - Jackie Robinson

The 2012 Topps Retired Number manupatches was a card set that featured 50 of the game's greatest players, all of which have had their number retired.

  1. I love this set. Lol. In fact, I just blogged about it too yesterday. I promise you I wasn't copying. Pure sports card coincidence.
