1987 Topps: Turn Back the Clock (Roberto Clemente '72)

The following 1987 Topps 'Turn Back the Clock' card represents part of a 5-card subset commemorating 5-, 10-, 15-, 20-, and 25-years ago in baseball and Topps card production.  It was the closest thing to a reprint card a 10-year old kid could find in 1987, and partially explains why the '72 Topps set has become one of my all-time favorite card sets.   

1975 Topps.

1973 Topps.  Although he did not play in '73, Topps did produce one final card of Roberto Clemente containing his entire career statistics.

1972 Topps.  It was a momentous event to finally obtain an original version of the '87 TBC card.

1971 Topps.

1970 Topps.

 1969 Topps.


1966 Topps.  Clemente won the NL MVP in '66.
