1964 Topps Hank Aaron

Following last month's '64 Pete Rose pickup, I've landed another big name for my 1964 Topps setbuild.

Uh-oh.. Here come The Hammer!

(Since the card is slabbed, perhaps "U Can't Touch This" would be a more applicable song.)

I took advantage of a recent 15% off eBay coupon code the other day to score a solid deal on this PSA 4 Hank Aaron. A bit off-center and the corners could be sharper, but overall, quite a beauty!

Clean back, too. A nice thing about vintage set collecting is it gives me an excuse to go after classic cards like this that otherwise might not wind up on my radar.

This card takes me to 66% complete with the set. Moving right along.

Funny enough, a bit over a year ago, I dropped the Hammer on the other vintage set I'm currently working on, 1957 Topps, and that one also happened to be a PSA 4 bought with help from an eBay coupon.

Thanks for stopping by. I've got another interesting Hank Aaron card on the way, so stay tuned for that.


  1. If that's graded a 4, then I can't imagine what most of my vintage cards would grade at (not that it matters much to me).

    1. Exactly what I was thinking, Nick. I gotta figure if the scale went negative, then that's where most of my vintage would reside.

  2. Anytime you can incorporate MC Hammer into a blog post... you know it's a solid post. You did it twice. Very nice. Almost as nice as that card.

  3. That's a nice looking Aaron for a graded 4!

  4. 2/3 of the '64 set is impressive - and so is that Aaron! I'm kind of surprised I haven't seen more MC Hammer references when discussing Aaron cards. Can't wait to see the next one!
