Here's a card I had fun creating: a "Nickname" card for uber-Hall of Fame superstar Hank Aaron.
Check it out:

I used a 1973 template since Aaron was about to topple quite a few all-time Major League numbers, and also had what was arguably his last "Aaron-esque" season in 1973, slamming 40 home runs while driving in 96, with a batting average of .301, slugging .643 and on-base-percentage of .402.
The man was raking that year before playing out his incredible 23-year career through the 1976 season as a member of the Milwaukee Brewers.
What needs to be said here? 
Let his numbers do all the talking: 2174 runs scored, 3771 hits, 624 doubles, 98 triples, 755 home runs, 2297 runs batted in, a .305 batting average no less than 21 all-star selections!
Just tremendous!
He also had eight top-5 finishes for MVP, including taking home the award in 1957, as well as three Gold Gloves won consecutively between 1958-1960.
It's incredible to look at his 15 years of topping 100 or more runs scored, 11 seasons of 100 or more runs batted in, five more seasons of 90+ RBI's, and TWENTY STRAIGHT years of 20 or more home runs.
Almost hilarious to look at! Just incredible…


  1. Has to be considered one of the greatest ever. Just look at the numbers. Near the top in so many categories. Class act too.

  2. I wish this card were real. It is a beauty!
