1st Hank Aaron

As I was filing this card away into my "Hank Aaron" section of the PC [sorry Willie and Lee, this card is all about Hank] I noticed that this was my first Hank Aaron card that was actually from when he was a player. I have a ton of more recent cards and am working on the Hank Aaron Baseball Heroes insert set but never actually grabbed one from when he was a player. This seems to hurt my baseball card blogging cred a little I think.

1972 Topps #89 National League Home Run Leaders Willie Stargell/Hank Aaron/Lee May

In the '71 season Stargell had 48 home runs, Aaron had 47, and May hit 39.
