Description1954 Topps Henry Aaron #128 PSA EX-MT+ 6.5. It's certainly one of the hobby's most important post-war cards, a status it will retain even though Aaron's remarkable 755 career home run total was finally surpassed. Though Aaron's own assumption of the home run crown came more than a quarter century after Jackie Robinson broke the color line, Hammerin' Hank was forced to endure everything from racist taunts to death threats as he reeled in the Babe.
This gorgeous slab of cardboard finds the young former Negro Leaguer at the start of that long march toward immortality, hatched from wax at a time when the Major Leagues were still settling in to integration. Graded PSA EX-MT+ 6.5. You'll find some mild corner wear. Very nicely centered. A great card of a great player.
Guide Value or Estimate: $15,000 - up.
Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
