Hank Aaron 2000 Topps Commemorative Set – Card #12 – 1965 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 12th card in the set, a re-print of Aaron’s 1965 Topps baseball card:
Amazingly, the 1965 baseball season was Hank Aaron’s 12th year in the big leagues. And he was just 31 years old!
Aaron paced the National League with 40 doubles in 1965, the second highest tally of his career. He also hit .318 on the year with 319 total bases and an OPS of .938.
Aaron finished 7th in the voting for the NL MVP in 1965 while making the All-Star team as a starting outfielder.
