ON-CARD ALL-STAR: 1970 HANK AARON

The last National League All-Star starter to get the on-card all-star treatment in the 1970 set is all-timer Hank Aaron, who was named to his 15th such team in 1969, a season which saw him do what he always did, flat out rake:


Aaron went on to hit 44 homers in 1969, while driving in 97 runs, scoring an even 100 and hitting .300 for the Braves, a "typical" Hank Aaron season.
Those numbers would help Atlanta to a first place finish in what was the first year of division play, with the Braves topping the West and New York Mets leading the East.
Aaron would also end up third in the National league MVP race, his highest finish since 1963 in which he also finished third.
The man was simply out of this world...
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.

  1. Thanks for the updated card. A nice career,but given his final total,I always thought it was interesting that he never hit 50 homers in a season and he only hit more than 45 once.

    1. That's what made him great, consistency, never had a bad year until he was over 40. This card always intrigued me, it looks like it was taken in the clubhouse.

  3. "Only"?! Ugh!!

    He hit 40 or more home runs eight times in his career. Pretty damn good, if you ask me.

    1. Didn't say it wasn't good. Obviously, it is, but, again,I think it is interesting how he compiled such a large career number without a breakout year (like Bonds 73, McGwire 70, Ruth 60) and how he managed to play 23 years without major injuries like some of the others sluggers of the game (like Mantle and Killebrew).

      Delete
    2. Not comparing apples to oranges - both Bonds and McGwire had a little help reaching their tarnished numbers. Killebrew was a masher, but didn't have as good a batting eye as Aaron. Who knows what Mantle could have done if he hadn't torn up his knee on that stupid drainage hole pipe.

  4. I just wonder, with his homer hitting ability, why he never made a run against Ruth's single season record. Agree completely on Mantle.

  6. I am sharing this testimony to partners suffering in their relationships because there is an enduring solution.
    My husband left me and our 2 kids for another woman for 3 years. I tried to be strong just for my kids but I could not control the pains that torment my heart. I was hurt and confused. I needed help, so I did some research on the internet and came across a site where I saw that Dr. Aluya a spell caster, can help get lovers back. I contacted him and he did a special prayer and spells for me. To my surprises, after some days, my husband came back home. That was how we reunited again and there was a lot of love, joy and peace in the family.
    You can as well contact Dr.  Aluya  , a powerful spell-caster for solutions on his Email  aluya.48hoursspelltemple@gmail.com or directly on WhatsApp:

  7. I am summer jessic from USA. I was having serious relationship problems with my lover and it had resulted in her moving out to her friend’s apartment. Everything got worse because she started going to bars and strip clubs frequently with her friend, getting drunk and passing out. She always threatens me on phone whenever I call her because of all the bad advises that her friend has given her. I really love her and we had been dating for 4 years which gave us a beautiful daughter. I had also lost a lot of money on therapists until I was introduced to DR Aluya a friend whom he helped to marry her childhood girlfriend; this gave me total confidence and strength to get her back. I did all he asked and after 28 hours my girlfriend called me and rushed back home, things just changed between us emotionally. She has a job and stopped drinking and keeping irrelevant friends. It’s a miracle I never believed was possible because I had lost all hope until I found DR Aluya. So that’s why I promised to share my testimony all over the universe. All thanks goes to DR Aluya for the excessive work that he has done for me. Below is the email address in situation you are undergoing a heart break, and I assure you that as he has done mine for me, he will definitely help you too. you  can contact him via:email:{ aluya.48hoursspelltemple@gmail.com }  or WhatsApp Him.  +2348110493039          also contact Him through his website:   https://draluya48hoursspelltemple.webs.com/

  8. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website: (https://emutemple.wordpress.com/)

  9. How I Got My Ex Husband Back..Am so excited to share my testimony of a real spell caster who brought my husband back to me. My husband and I have been married for about 6 years now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr  Aluya   can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and and told him my problems and he told me what to do and i did it and he did a spell for me. 48 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr  Aluya Powerful Love Spell that really works. If you have any problem contact him and i guarantee you that he will help you. He will not disappoint you. Email him at:  aluya.48hoursspelltemple@gmail.com  or whatsapp him on:  +2348110493039      you can also go through his website   draluya48hoursspelltemple.webs.com/
