Hank Aaron 2000 Topps ‘Opening Day’
I picked up this card for fifty cents a few weeks ago. I was immediately drawn to the card as it is a re-print of Aaron’s 1954 Topps rookie baseball card.
The card was released in 2000, and is part of Topps’ “Opening Day” set.
Have a look:
And now my question: Why was Hank Aaron put into a set like this? Opening Day sets have always featured the starting line-up of teams from that season. Aaron retired 25 years before this card was released…
I’m really stumped with this one, and would love any insight or info that the great readers of this blog may have.
