My Aaron Rookie Card...

...Tommie Aaron that is.

It really isn't fair to compare Tommie's & Hank's stats, so I won't. That would be like comparing Eddie Murray with Rich Murray. Tommie played for seven seasons [over 10 years] with the Milwaukee/Atlanta Braves. During those off years [1964, '66, and '67] Tommie played in the International League.

1963 Topps #46 Tommie Aaron [Rookie Card]

I knew that HankAaron started his baseball career in my home town of Eau Claire, WI but I forgot/didn't realize that Tommie did as well. I don't see my home town listed on the back of a card everyday!
