1974 hank aaron special (1968 - 1969)

here's the 1974 o-pee-chee hank aaron special (1968 - 1969) card:
here's the equivalent topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
i wonder if topps, when they were putting these cards together, was embarrassed by the fact that they used the same photo for aaron two years in a row.  it's hank aaron, for crying out loud.  anyway, on this card we get to read about his 3000th hit and 700th home run in french. 

and, this is the last 1974 post.  we have now hit all of the hank aaron specials that were different than the topps counterparts, as well as the three cards displaced by the o-pee-chee expansion of the aaron subset.  by the way, number 8 in the topps set is george theodore.

voici à vous, 1974 hank aaron special (1968 - 1969)!
