Card #31: Welcome To 1992 Roberto

Roberto Clemente passed away twenty years prior to the 1992 Topps release.

2017 Archives gave us a nice What If? moment though by providing the greatest rightfielder in Pittsburgh history to be seen on a card design he unfortunately wasn't alive for.
The image used isn't an overused image by Topps so that was a nice surprise.  The colors match the same colors used on all other Pirates players from the original 1992 set.

My only gripe with the card is that it doesn't have an image of Forbes Field or Three Rivers Stadium on the back.

  1. Still bugs me they didn't fit complete stats on the back. His career didn't begin in '59! lol. But yeah, otherwise nice card.
