Spring Fever Auction
Hank Aaron's Hall of Fame career is often defined by his 755 career home runs and his epic chase of Babe Ruth's one-time record of 714 career round trippers, though the story of Hammerin Hank Aaron's baseball life runs much deeper. He could hit the long ball with the best of them, but the legendary Aaron was a dominant all-around player finishing his 23-year career with a .305 batting average and a record 24 All-Star appearances during his time with the Braves and Brewers. The legendary Aaron remains one of the most collectible athletes of his generation.
