Hank Aaron 2000 Topps Commemorative Set – Card #23 – 1975 Topps Design

Hank Aaron 2000 Topps Commemorative Set – Card #23 – 1975 Topps Design

I continue to work to add more cards from this set to my collection set since officially declaring that I wanted to build the full set as one of my 2013 collecting goals.

This is the 23rd card in the set, a re-print of Aaron’s 1975 Topps baseball card:

22

The 1975 baseball season was the last full-time season for Aaron in the big leagues.  At 41 years of age, Aaron played in 137 games for the Milwaukee Brewers.  While Aaron was still able to show some pop, with 16 doubles and 12 home runs, his batting average of .234 dipped well below his career average of .305. 

’75 was Aaron’s final season as an All-Star as well.
