Beautiful, full-color example of "Hammerin' Hank" Aaron, the all-time home run king, nearly ten years before breaking the record held by the immortal Babe Ruth.  Issued in packages of Kahn's hot dogs, the 1965 set was a 45-card set that featured full-color images of players from the Braves, Pirates, Indians and Reds.  Kahn's Wieners cards are much more scarce than their mainstream gum-card counterparts, due to their lower production and regional distribution.

Graded EX/NM 80 by SGC, this card of Aaron is a vivid color photo of Aaron, smiling at the camera while gripping his bat.  The card's four corners are lightly touched, each with small specks of white showing through as a result.  The impact of these corner touches is what reduces the card's numerical grade, as the rest of the card is magnificent, with strong color and image quality, sharp edges, and a very clean reverse.

An outstanding regional issue, this card of Hall of Famer Hank Aaron is one of his more scarce 1960s issues.
