Hank Aaron 2000 Topps Commemorative Set – Card #10 – 1963 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 10th card in the set, a re-print of Aaron’s 1963 Topps baseball card:
Henry Aaron was a beast during the 1963 baseball season – his 10th in the league.
By the time that the 162-game schedule was complete, Aaron was the National League’s leader in seven major offensive statistical categories.
- Runs – 121
- Home Runs – 44
- RBI – 130
- Slugging – .576
- OPS – .977
- OPS+ – 179
- Total Bases – 370
His performance led to a 3rd place finish for the NL MVP Award. He finished behind Sandy Koufax and Dick Groat.
