Hank Aaron 2000 Topps Commemorative Set – Card #7 – 1960 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 7th card in the set, a re-print of Aaron’s 1960 Topps baseball card:

Hank Aaron’s offensive output was so spectacular in 1960 that I was shocked to find that he finished 11th in the MVP voting at the end of the year.  Aaron led the league in three categories at the conclusion of the season: RBI (126), Total Bases (334), and sacrifice flies (12).  In addition to that, he connected for 172 hits which included 20 doubles and 40 home runs.  He scored 102 runs, stole 16 bases, and struck out just 63 times in 664 plate appearances.

  1. 664 plate appearances…. WOW!
    He didn’t know how to strike out. What an amazing player. I’m thrilled by his stats.
