Baseball legend dies
« on: January 22, 2021, 04:30:24 pm »
Hank aaron who was the homerun king in major league baseball passed away at the age of 86. I had the honor of meeting him in 1991 at a show. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family & friends

I didn't know he was still alive.  He definitely broke barriers.  RIP legend.

One of my earliest memories was watching him hit number 714 off of Al Downing of the Dodgers - i think the game was on Monday night baseball or something like that

I had a baseball card about 60 yrs ago.Mickey Mantle and Hank Aaron in their batting stances.Mickey was batting left and Hank batting right.

Id love to know what that card is worth now.Man do I wish i kept all the cards.
