Hank Aaron 2000 Topps Commemorative Set – Card #15 – 1968 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 15th card in the set, a re-print of Aaron’s 1968 Topps baseball card:

Hank Aaron had another solid season in 1968.  He played in 160 games during the ’68 campaign, the second highest count of any single season in which he played.

Some of Aaron’s notable numbers from that season include: 174 hits, 33, doubles, 29 home runs, 84 runs scored, 86 RBI, 302 total bases, and a batting average of .287.  In 676 plate appearances, Aaron was walked 64 times and struck out just 62 times.
