48 Years ago this month, Roberto Clemente was killed in a plane crash delivering food and essentials to the people of Nicaragua following an earthquake. If he had never done anything else in his life, this act charity would have been enough to celebrate him as a hero, however he was and still is one of the best and most admired baseball players of all time. He was a 15x All Star, 2x World Series Champ, World Series MVP, 12X gold glove winner, and 4x NL batting champ. Playing his entire career with the Pittsburgh Pirates he accumulated exactly 3000 hits. If your looking for a Hall of Famer to start collecting there are few better places to start. If you already a PC of Roberto we would love to see your favorite card. Throwback Thursday set this week features a really great looking card, you should go pick up a set or two.
