    1956 Topps Hank Aaron (Gray Back) #31 PSA Mint 9 - None Higher! Presented is one of only six cards receiving the PSA highest grade (not including qualified ones) for the 1956 Topps Hank Aaron Gray Back. For many baseball fans, Hall of Famer Hank Aaron is the people's all-time home run leader. Sure, Barry Bonds hit more, 762 to Aaron's 755. But many fans think that Bonds had some alleged help from substances that made his body grow - in an enormous way. So, many rooters give the all-time homer crown to Aaron, a man with a normal, athletic body. When Aaron was growing up in Mobile, Alabama, he developed the habit of batting cross-handed as he hit bottle caps with a broom handle.

    As a pro, he had to change that grip, but many believe that much of his power came from the strong wrists he developed from that cross-handed swing. Playing 23 Major League seasons with the Milwaukee/Atlanta Braves, and then the Milwaukee Brewers, Aaron led the National League in home runs in four seasons, in batting in two seasons, and had a lifetime .305 average. Until his older seasons, he was also a superior right fielder. In 1956, Aaron led the National League in batting (.328), hits (200), doubles (34), and total bases (340).

    Graded PSA Mint 9. The has a portrait of Aaron as well as a smaller action shot of him about to slide into home, and a neat, facsimile autograph. As per 1956 Topps style, there are three clever Aaron cartoons on the back, plus stats. It has great visual appeal, and its condition scarcity as being one of only six of the PSA highest graded (non-qualified) 1956 Topps Hank Aaron Gray Back cards makes it of high and enduring value.
