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.

The are:

  • Runs – 121
  • Home Runs – 44
  • RBI – 130
  • Slugging – .576
  • OPS – .977
  • OPS+ – 179

His performance led to a 3rd place finish for the NL MVP Award.  He finished behind Sandy Koufax and Dick Groat.
