1971 Topps #717: Tommie Aaron 1B, Atlanta Braves

Tommie Aaron played his entire career with the Braves' organization beginning with his first major league appearance for the Milwaukee club in 1962, and ending with his final appearance for the relocated Atlanta club in 1971.  This was also Tommie's final Topps card as a player.  He appeared in a postseason game against the Mets in 1969 during the first NLCS.  Tommie is exactly 5-1/2 years younger than his brother. 

BV: $12.00
Cost: $3.00 (paid 25% BV)
Condition: VG+ 3.5 (worth 25% BV)
Completion: 738 of 752 (98% complete)
Comment:  The primary flaws on this card are from heavy chipping/layering along the edges.  There is also some minor off-centering with slight corner rounding, but nice surface gloss.
