Hank Aaron 2000 Topps Commemorative Set – Card #23 – 1976 Topps Design

Hank Aaron 2000 Topps Commemorative Set – Card #23 – 1976 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 1976 Topps baseball card:

23

As for Aaron’s 1976 baseball season, Aaron appeared in just 86 games for the Milwaukee Brewers.  He still showed some pop with 10 home runs and 35 RBI, but his ability to put the ball in play on a consistent level had fallen off pretty sharply.  Hank hit just .229 in 1976, 76 points below his career average of .305.
