    Description

    1954 Topps Hank Aaron #128 PSA NM-MT 8. Hank Aaron is regarded by many by many as baseball's true all-time home run leader because he hit his round-trippers before the "Steroid Era." Hall of Famer Aaron was not a particularly large man, listed perhaps as a generous 6'0" and was thin when he began his minor league career. So where did he get his power? Aaron himself has said he thinks it's because of strong wrists developed from years of batting cross-handed, a habit he developed in his youth. When he started playing for the Braves farm system, their hitting coaches helped him change to a more conventional grip and his power started to surge. A 3-time NL MVP, and a 21-time All-Star, Aaron was an outstanding overall player. He played 23 MLB seasons - 21 with the Milwaukee/Atlanta Braves and a final two with the Milwaukee Brewers.

    Graded PSA NM-MT 8. The 1954 Topps issue was only 250 cards because Topps and Bowman were still in a card war, and each had signed many players to exclusive contracts. Topps spared no expense in the war, and for the first time Topps issued cards with two front images: a large colorized portrait and a small B&W action shot.
