Default Hank Aaron

It might be just me, but it doesn't seem like Hank Aaron gets the respect Ruth, Gehrig, Cobb, Mantle, & Mays get when it comes to collecting.

Is there anyone on the board whose focus is Aaron, or just in general anyone have any neat/unique Aaron items.

Show what ya got, please.

In my opinion Aaron's Signed items are way undervalued

Found some PSA/JSA 8x10s for under $100. Think I'll be getting a few soon.

I believe there are a lot of Hank Aaron collectors on here.

His RC has continued an upward climb since I joined the site in January of 2016 and I don't see that stopping anytime soon.

I have a few Aaron cards, not his RC, unfortunately, but one is definitely on my "hope to own one day" list.

I would love to pick up a nice Aaron Negro League item, but have not come across anything to this point. Some amazing pieces were sold back in 2008 when many items from Syd Pollock's estate were sold, but I wasn't in the market then.

If you're looking to get Aaron signed photos it would be best to look for seldom seen photos and photos with vintage signatures. Always best to look for those then the ones that everyone else has. As a Mickey Mantle collector I look for his vintage signatures because they are much scarcer than the later autograph circuit ones...those also seem undervalued as well.

I recently acquired an Aaron 1970's store model Louisville Slugger that is in nearly perfect shape. It was not my primary purchase but was included with something else. I would love to have Aaron sign it.

Aaron is sort of an enigma to me - as a kid he was one of my favorite hitters, along with Willie Mays, Mickey Mantle and Frank Howard. To us kids, the Aaron card was as sought-after as Mays or any other player after Mantle, and that was well before Aaron passed Ruth. I lived near Houston and we saw the Braves play a lot. Everyone seemed to be at the game to see Aaron (and the Astros) - I never heard anything negative. Yet Aaron has had plenty of bad words for the South and Texas, among other things. I'm sure he didn't imagine the negativity, but I was never too happy with his lumping all of us together.

Same here. We'd always make sure to include an Atlanta game each year from 1970-1975 when the braves came to play the Dodgers, just to see Hank play. He was my favorite active player followed by Willie Mays and Wes Parker. Fast forward to 1989-today and both Mays and Aaron have been two of the rudest, surliest autograph signers I've ever seen. I've seen them both on multiple occasions (I've been, and always will be, very respectful at signings...yes sir, thank you sir, etc) so it wasn't just one or the other having a bad day. They both seem to lump everyone in to the same boat, so I finally decided to jump out of the boat and not get anything else signed by them.

Extremely difficult Hank, the highest graded is a 5. One of the toughest sets of the 1960's. These were issued in Canada in 1968 and were the same as the US counterparts issued in 1967. The only difference was the poster number and at the bottom it says printed in Canada vs USA. It is thought that the print run for these was roughly 3-5% of the US. Anything you can find is torn or split at the seams. Most of the set pops are single digits.
