Last month (January 2021) After we lost Hank Aaron, I had said that I would put together a proper Tribute post using the cards in my Hank Aaron (PC) binder. Well, I've have my binder here in GA now, but I am supposed to have 297 Aaron cards (I do), but the binder only has 214 of my 297. The missing 83 cards are in the PC boxes that I have back home. I would need a couple of days to go through those boxes to find the 83 cards. I never have that kind of time when I drive back to Ocala. I usually have about 15 minutes at the house before heading back to GA.
In case you hadn't noticed I've been away from my blog for the last few days. I needed to reorganize the binder, not that that means it is organized per say. Just placing cards in "sort of" a chronological order. That is done. Now I just need to scan the pages, then crop the cards. I'll work on that stuff this week and hopefully have the 214 cards/ish in a post after that. In case you are wondering Hank Aaron has (according to Beckett) 5,357 cards/items. Of course most of those are not vintage, much like my collection I have several vintage Aaron's including his RC 54' Topps, but that is with the Braves team sets. I have said in the past I wasn't going to grab multiples of the high priced cards. Like the 54' I would need 3 copies so that the set build had one. I may just move those to the set build in time. Who knows, we'll see.
What is really crazy is Acuna Jr had 2,459 cards for 2020 (7,042 total) and I'm sure it will trickle up. WTF Topps? Really??????? Aaron 5357 Acuna (in 5 years) 7042......
Okay, I feel better now. I vented and have updated you folks.
Be safe, have fun, and I didn't do it.
