Description

    1954 Topps Henry Aaron #128 PSA NM-MT 8. The recently dethroned (and many would consider "reigning legitimate") Home Run King failed to earn All-Star Game nods in only the first and the last years of his twenty-three season career, and this glamorous relic dates to the former. Properly regarded as one of the most important trading cards of the post-war era, the 1954 Topps Aaron rookie is counted among the hobby's most recognizable pieces. This gum card heralded the arrival of a force of nature, a phenomenon of a magnitude unseen since a man named Babe ruled the game.

    Almost doubling the value of its next closest competitor (Ted Williams #250) within the popular bubble gum issue, Aaron's debut card is presented here in remarkable NM-MT 8 condition. Hampered only by a 65/35 horizontal shift, the card's razor-sharp corners, eye-popping color and an utter absence of wear would almost assuredly merit a Mint 9 rating otherwise. Just twenty-four unqualified examples of the Aaron rookie surpass the offered card on the PSA population chart, a segment that represents less than one percent of the 2,419 copies holdered to date.
