    1954 Topps Hank Aaron #128 PSA NM 7. It may sound silly to suggest that an iconic first-ballot Hall of Famer has been underrated, but we wouldn't be the first to voice the sentiment. Mickey Mantle himself said as much upon his own retirement, telling a sportswriter, "As far as I'm concerned, Aaron is the best ballplayer of my era. He is to baseball of the last fifteen years what Joe DiMaggio was before him. He's never received the credit he's due."

    Every sports fan worth his salt knows that Aaron spent a quarter century upon the home run throne (and many still consider him to be the true King), but far fewer are aware that he remains the career leader in RBI's (2,297) and total bases (6,856), or that he ranks number three behind only Rose and Cobb in Major League hits. In short, Aaron authored one of the greatest careers in the history of American sports, one in which his reign as Home Run King was only a chapter of the story. Presented is his rookie card, representing the first chapter of that epic tale. Graded PSA NM 7.
