By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor

One of the most beloved players in MLB history will be back on Topps cards starting next year.

Topps announced on Friday that it has reached a deal with the estate of Pittsburgh Pirates legend Roberto Clemente to showcase him on baseball cards beginning with 2012 Topps, which arrives in February.

The multi-year deal includes the rights to showcase him on inserts, cut autographs, Relics and more.

He presently appears on 2,817 cards in the Beckett database with his 1955 Topps Rookie Card checking in at $2,200.
