    Description

    1954 Topps Hank Aaron Rookie #128 PSA EX-MT 6. Intriguingly, Aaron's Big League debut in 1954 had come at the expense of another home run hero, former Giants star Bobby Thomson who broke an ankle sliding into second during that year's spring training schedule. The twenty-year old Aaron would win the competition to succeed the 1951 pennant-winner in left field and would appear in 122 games in 1954, batting .280 and clubbing thirteen home runs. It was the only season of his service to the Braves franchise his long ball output would dip below twenty. On September 5, 1954, Aaron ironically suffered the same injury as his predecessor, a broken ankle putting an end to his rookie campaign.

    Graded PSA EX-MT 6. Here we find the future Home Run King just beginning his long march to the throne. The vibrant orange background recalls another titan of The Standard Catalog, the T206 Wagner. It's unquestionably one of the most important rookies of the post-war era, and a lovely example thereof.
