(LOT 243)
1954 Topps #128 Hank Aaron Rookie PSA 7 NM

PSA-GRADED AARON ROOKIE!!! "I don't want them to forget Babe Ruth, I just want them to remember me!" - Henry Aaron. Thank God, that Henry Aaron has lived long enough to see his quote come to fruition. All through the prime of Aaron's career, there was always one or two players ahead of him on the respect ladder, mostly notably Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays. But Hank kept hammerin' away. Season after season, All-Star Game after All-Star Game, Hank Aaron kept going out everyday and doing his job.

Year in and year out, Hammerin' Hank would bat .300 + hit 35-40 homers, and knock in 100-115 runs. Year after year after year after year, Aaron would produce. He played in 122 games in his rookie season of 1954, and wouldn't play less than 145 games again until 1971, in which he played in 139 games and hit a career best 47 round-trippers! Offered is an incredible PSA NM 7 example of Henry Aaron's 1954 Topps rookie card. Just a gorgeous card that is certain to be a cornerstone in the most advanced of collections.
