Happy Birthday, Hank Aaron!



On the day Hank Aaron celebrates his 82nd birthday, Beckett Vintage Collector is revealing the cover of the next issue of the magazine – The Hammer himself in a vintage image circa 1957.

A feature on Aaron and his standing in the hobby, along with a gallery of virtually every one of his Topps cards from 1954 to 1976 are included in the issue. Also shown in the issue: Aaron’s first card, a 1952 postcard picturing a 17-year-old Aaron as a member of the Indianapolis Clowns of the Negro American League.

Also included in the issue is a feature on the mysterious Philadelphia Gum Company, an in-depth look at the 1895 N300 Mayo cards, 1972-73 O-Pee-Chee Hockey and 1961 Fleer Basketball as well as key recent auction sales.

Beckett Vintage Collector is published every two months.
