Impressive 1956 photograph of Hall of Famer Hank Aaron at the bat rack and choosing his weapon before his next trip to the plate. Stamped on the back from early in his career (1956) and from the International News, this is one of his finest early images we have handled. Photo has a staple hole on the upper left and a chip off the lower right corner but the image portion itself is unaffected. Images of Aaron are undervalued in the hobby and this one is a tremendous investment, sure to skyrocket in value when he is fully appreciated in the future.
