Close But No Cigar-1973 Topps Roberto Clemente
Why this card was considered: It's a vintage Topps cards of one of the greatest players of all time. This is also his last issued card during his playing days, before his untimely death.
Why this card ultimately didn't make the cut: The biggest reason
is it's in pretty rough shape. There was a reason it was in the dollar bin.
Also, maybe an earlier issue of Clemente would've made the cut, but I
just felt there were many others in my collection that deserved to make the
list besides this Clemente.
