Hank In The Back

I don't know about you, but for me, when watching Reservoir Dogs Mr. Pink shoots it out with the cops and gets away at the end of the movie. That's just how I like to see things.

It's that sort of thinking that leads me to this: that is Hank Aaron standing in the back of Darrell Evan's 1976 Topps card.

I know by '76 Hank had returned to Milwaukee as a Brewer but Topps was notorious for using older photographs in current year cards. For example, Hank's '54, '55, '56 Topps card all used the same photo.

Maybe I'm just looking at the card with rose colored glasses but I swear I can almost make out a #44 on his jersey in the background.
