    Description

    1954 Topps Hank Aaron Rookie #128 PSA Mint 9. Certainly one of the hobby's most important post-war cards, a status it will retain even now that Aaron's remarkable 755 career home run total has been surpassed. Though Aaron's own assumption of the home run crown came more than a quarter century after Jackie Robinson broke the color line, Hammerin' Hank was forced to endure everything from racist taunts to death threats as he reeled in the Babe. This exceptional Mint example of his 1954 Topps rookie card is a fitting tribute to the skill and bravery of history's most prolific slugger, remaining to this day entirely unchanged from its emergence from a wax pack over a half century ago. Offering perfect color, registration and centering to go along with its complete absence of wear, it is not surprising that this card finds itself near the top of the record books (much like the man himself) with only two specimens ever grading higher.
