    1972 Topps Hank Aaron #299 PSA NM-MT 8. When Hank Aaron took his first of 715 steps to pass Babe Ruth's fabled career home run record with an April 23, 1954 blast at St. Louis' Sportsman's Park, racial segregation was still the law of the land. Although Jackie Robinson and the historic Brown vs. Board of Education would make great strides toward changing that, the former star of the Negro American League's Indianapolis Clowns would find that he would not travel a smooth road toward his eventual baseball immortality. Aaron had been the top producer for the Braves' Jacksonville affiliate in the segregated Deep South in 1953, where he "led the league in everything but hotel accommodations" as one journalist quipped, but his legacy would remain one of brilliance in the face of adversity throughout his Major League career as well. 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. This auction features a selection of Hank Aaron card collectibles.

    This presentation includes: Hank Aaron - 1972 Topps #299, graded PSA NM-MT 8. Nicely centered, high quality corners. The SMR value is $95.00.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
