BCHOF Card #5

Hey guys, Drew back here, I posted the wantlist for Allen & Ginter under set wantlists under my PC's on the sidebar. Everyone should be able to be able to view it now, no more technical difficulties! Here is the next card in the series:
1954 Topps Hank Aaron Rookie Card

Well, it was during the time that he was known as Henry, or other racist names to most people. Today, he's the king of home runs. Say what you want about Jackie Robinson but I think this guy is the one that really ended the issue of being prejudice and opened the gates to all types of players! Hank hit 755 home runs in his career, and should still be known as the home run king, instead of Bonds. This is Hank's most legendary card and it sells for close to around $1000. I'd love to get my hands on it, but I'd have to get my hands on Bill Gates' wallet first!

So guys be sure to remember that there will be a different poll for the next card now. What will card #6? Will Shoeless Joe finally get the nod, or will Sandy Koufax prevail? What about the 1951 Bowman Willie Mays? It's your decision. See Ya!

  1. Here's a list of cards that may not necessarily rookie cards but are great looking cards of great players:

    1956 Topps Ted Williams (or 1954 or 1955 since they used the same picture all 3 years)

    1953 Topps Jackie Robinson

    1954 Bowman Ted Williams (valuable card)

    1941 Playball Ted Williams
