THE ATHLETE

Always mentioned in the conversation for GOAT, Hank Aaron was one of the most feared hitters of his era. On April 18, 1974, Hammerin’ Hank hit his 715th dinger, breaking Babe Ruth’s seemingly unbreakable record of 714. Aaron finished his career in 1976 with 755 round-trippers. While he was best-known for the long ball, Aaron was one of MLB’s greatest all-around hitters, racking up 3,771 hits, the third-most in league history. His 2,297 RBIs still ranks as the most ever, and is considered to be all but impossible to top. Another Aaron record that will likely never be broken: His 25 All-Star appearance. As if that weren’t enough, Aaron as a 3x Gold Glove Award winner, a 2x NL batting champion. and a Wold Series Champion (1957). Aaron is a member of the MLB Hall of Fame, was selected to the MLB All-Century Team, and his #44 is retired by the Atlanta Braves and the Milwaukee Brewers.

Graded an 8.5 by PSA, sports collectibles leading grading agency. This 1954 Topps Henry Aaron is one of 7 to have received that grade, with only 27 examples graded higher out of 5,175 graded examples.
The PWCC Top 100 index, an index that tracks the price movements of the top 100 most valuable trading cards sold at auction and which includes other comparable cards, has risen 264% since January 2008.
Notoriously difficult to grade due to poor centering, print defects in the vivid orange background, and chipping issues along the edges on the green backside of the card are common problems throughout the set.
The 1954 Topps set carries historical significance for the history of the trading card industry. It was produced during heated competition between two rival manufacturers, the more established Bowman and the upstart Topps.
According to Heritage Auctions, this card is considered “one of the most essential post war rookies” ever produced with its “bright colors, sharp corners and clear surfaces [as] keys to its success.”
