1974 hank aaron special (1958 - 1959)

here's the second hank aaron special variation to be featured here, although it's actually the first of the variations (and card number 3) in the set.  it's the 1974 o-pee-chee hank aaron special (1958 - 1959)
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
since both are card number 3 in their respective sets, i don't classify it as a checklist variation, but rather a photo variation since it only features two of the cards pictured on the topps card.  at least that's my current thinking.  it is interesting to see that aaron's most memorable home runs (prior to 714 and beyond) were the 1957 pennant winner, his 500th, and an all star game homer.

voici à vous, 1974 hank aaron special (1958 - 1959)!

  1. Nice job! Just added a profile of your site to my #5 collection blog, highlighting the 1974 Hank Aarons and the trio of re-numbered OPC cards.

    It also made me think a custom card person should create OPC versions of the 3 guys bumped from the set. We'll see if my (lack of) French is up to it. :-)
