Impressive 1955-56 photograph of Hall of Famer Hank Aaron at spring training and choosing his weapon before his next trip to the plate. A fantastic image in great shape, this captures the young star wearing a uniform that would change after the 1956 season cementing this as one of his earliest images ever taken which at the latest, presents him before the start of the 1956 season. Crystal clear and bold this is on of the finest photographs of the young star we have ever seen, so clear that even the wood grain on the bat can easily be seen. Blank backed, it is impossible to determine an exact year of production, but the style of photography, paper used and all the characteristics of the image pinpoint a pre-1960's date of creation! Images of Aaron are undervalued in the hobby and this one is a tremendous investment.
