Hank Aaron 2000 Topps Commemorative Set – Card #6 – 1959 Topps Design

This is the third card that I have obtained for this set since officially declaring that I wanted to build the full set as one of my 2013 collecting goals.

This is the 6th card in the set, a re-print of Aaron’s 1959 Topps baseball card:

Aaron’s 1959 baseball season was superb.  He finished in 3rd place for the league’s MVP Award due to his league leading batting average of .355.  He collected a league-high 223 hits in 1959, with 46 doubles, 7 triples, and 39 home runs.  Aaron also paced the NL in slugging percentage at .636, OPS at 1.037, and total bases with 400.
