Default 1955 topps Roberto Clemente BVG 5

Hi everybody... I just purchased a 55 Clemente BVG 5 of 800 bucks. Do you guys think that is a good buy. It is centered and has great color. I feel I got a steal but just wanted some feedback. Thanks for your time.

FWIW, most recent BVG sales:
BVG 5 on ebay 9/12 686
BVG 5.5 on ebay 12/12 867

PSA 5s sell for much more (right about 1k) so if it will cross its worth looking at

Those little letters are known as qualifiers. The MC means miscut. They kill the value of a card.

the MC qualifier will really hurt the value of a card i am surprized a 7 mc went for $935 that should be a $500 dollar card at the most
