    Description

    1954 Topps Hank Aaron Rookie #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 was displaced through questionable means), 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 epic tale.

    We find him in the first chapter of that tale here, and nearly seven decades later this commemorative has lost almost none of the beauty it held upon its emergence from a wax pack. Colors, registration and centering are beyond reproach, with just the slightest hints of wear restricting an even higher climb up the grading and pricing ladders. Graded PSA NM 7.
