Hank Aaron 2012 Topps ‘Golden Greats’ – Aaron Slams Cardinals!

The ‘Golden Greats’ subset that was featured in the 2012 Topps flagship set took the great players of the game and gave us a few highlights from their careers.

Many players in this set received multiple cards, with Hank Aaron rightfully being one of them.

Have a look:

AARON 7

This card celebrates a game played on 7/2/1962 when Aaron and his Braves team was trailing the Cardinals 6-3 heading into the ninth inning and facing a certain loss.  After scoring one run, Aaron was up to bat with the bases loaded and a 6-4 deficit.  Aaron was already 3-for-3 on the day when he blasted a Grand-Slam, Walk-Off, Game-Winning Home Run!!!

It’s nice to see this event captured and honored as a part of this set!!!
