Hank Aaron 2000 Topps Commemorative Set – Card #18 – 1971 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 18th card in the set, a re-print of Aaron’s 1971 Topps baseball card:
As for Aaron’s 1971 baseball season, his baseball abilities were still respected at the highest level by his peers and competition. He drew a league leading 21 intentional walks while hitting .327 with 47 home runs and 118 RBI. He also led the league in slugging percentage (.669), OPS (1.079), and OPS+ (194).
