    None superior!

    1956 Topps Hank Aaron (White Back) #31 PSA Mint 9 from "The Hammerin' Hank Collection" Registry Set. 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.

    But this particular Aaron commemorative earns its proper respect, filed properly in the top half of one percent of all PSA submissions, none above. You'll note that the slab header here references the "Hammerin' Hank Collection" pedigree, the Number Two All-Time Finest assembly of cardboard celebrating this elite practitioner of our national pastime. Sharp corners and registration, clean surfaces and fine centering lead the charge to the top of the pop.
