Missing only Roberto Clemente, that still leaves it with 6 HOFers: Luis Aparicio, Orlando Cepeda, Tony Oliva, Tony Perez, Rod Carew, and Juan Marichal. As you may have guessed from the set name and some of the subjects, it was released to honor Hispanic players in the majors and only available in Puerto Rico. This set is tough. We could find historical transactions for singles, and found one for a group of 4, and one group of 9, but could find no examples of a set this near completion for sale. Was originally issued with a plaque that has space for 9 on the front, and bios for all 13 players on the back. There are only 2 100% completed sets listed as current in the PSA registry. So if you've got the Clemente, this may be your best chance to complete the set. The Clemente, incidentally is issued in a gold color as opposed to the rest of the set in silver. It is also the most easily located of these coins so completing a set would be a doable goal!
