Top Hank Aaron Cards #s 5-1

5: 1966 Topps #500 Hank Aaron

Part One of Aaron’s Top RCs & More ended with the Hall of Famer’s last card with the Milwaukee Braves. It’s only fitting that we start Part Two with his inaugural Atlanta Braves card. In his first season in The ATL in 1966, the power-hitting outfielder led the NL in homers for the third of four times, tallying 44. Just like the 1965 Topps Hank Aaron, the 1966 version is a five-figure card when graded at a PSA 10.

4: 1955 Bowman #177 Hank Aaron

The 1955 Bowman #177 Hank Aaron is Aaron’s only Bowman card. The company didn’t produce a 1954 Aaron card, and it was acquired by Topps in 1956. That simple fact, along with the legendary TV set design, makes this bad boy a showstopper. Acquiring the 1955 Bowman #177 Hank Aaron might require reaching deep into the ole’ pockets.

3: 1955 Topps #47 Hank Aaron

In May 2022, a higher-graded version of the 1955 Topps #47 Hank Aaron fetched over $50,000. While there are supposedly no PSA 10s in existence, well-conditioned versions of this card still command hefty prices. Although not as coveted as Aaron’s rookie card, these cards are still considered valuable despite their abundance. The artwork is one-of-a-kind. Salute to the Topps designers of yesteryear.

2: 1976 Laughlin #34 Hank Aaron Indianapolis Clowns 

The 1976 Laughlin #34 Hank Aaron Indianapolis Clowns stems from the Hall of Famer’s stint in the Negro Leagues. Despite his brief tenure in 1951, where he belted five homers, Aaron’s presence in one of baseball’s most storied leagues is a testament to his early journey in the sport. His subsequent acquisition by the Braves in 1952 wound up changing baseball history forever.

1: 1954 Topps #128 Hank Aaron RC

The 1954 Topps #128 Hank Aaron RC marks “Hammerin’ Hank’s” debut with Topps and stands as one of the most significant cards in collecting history. Its importance cannot be overstated—so much so that a PSA 10 once fetched over $350,000 at auction. That’s equivalent to the price of a nice house in a pretty decent neighborhood, my friends.
