HANK AARON The baseball legend pens his signature on this printed card Printed Card signed in Ink: "Hank Aaron" 4¼x2½. Imprinted: "I Was There/When Hank Aaron/Hit His/600th HOMER/Date____/at Atlanta Stadium". On April 28, 1971, with Ralph Garr on first and the San Francisco Giants Gaylord Perry on the mound, Hank Aaron hit a 350-foot homer over the left-field fence at Atlanta's Fulton County Stadium. It was witnessed by Giants' centerfielder Willie Mays, who had hit his 600th home run in 1969. Hall of Famer Hank Aaron (b. 1934) played for the Braves in Milwaukee (1954-1965) and Atlanta (1966-1974), and for the Milwaukee Brewers (1975-1976). From 1974 to 2007, he held the record for most career home runs (755), besting Babe Ruth's 714, but later being edged out by Barry Bonds' 762. Aaron is synonymous with home runs, but there was much more to Hammerin' Hank than his 755 round-trippers. He also set all-time marks for the most games, at bats, total bases and RBI's; and his batting average over 23 seasons was .305 - all indications of the all-around ability of this quiet man from Mobile. The NL MVP in 1957, he appeared in a record 24 All-Star contests with the Braves (Milwaukee and Atlanta) and Brewers. Fine condition.
