DescriptionHank Aaron Signed Photograph Lot of 4.
Inspired by the success of Jackie Robinson, a fifteen-year-old Henry Aaron signed with the semi-pro Mobile Black Bears in 1949, for a sum of $3 per game (limited to home games by his mother). Two years later Aaron would move from Alabama to Indianapolis and sign with the Clowns for a more robust contract of $200 per month. After only a year in Indy, scouts from the Giants and Braves had seen enough of him to each offer a contract, with a higher salary tipping the scales towards the Braves. Aaron made the opening day roster in 1954 at 20-years-old, in part due to Bobby Thompson's broken ankle. An ankle injury of his own shortened the '54 campaign, but Hammerin' Hank was well on his way to stardom. Twenty-three seasons, 3771 hits, 2297 RBIs, and 755 home runs later Henry Louis Aaron remains one of the greats players to step on the diamond.
Offered are three 8x10" photographs and one mounted magazine page, each signed in bold blue sharpie by Aaron. Only light wear exhibited. Pre-Certified

Sunday Internet Sports: These auctions are presented only online and bidding is only taken through our website. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 15 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 15 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:03, the new end time for that lot would become 10:18. If no other bids were placed before 10:18, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 15 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:15. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
