A Piece of History – Aaron, Ruth, & Mays

Posted: September 29, 2009 in 500 HR Club, Baseball Cards, Upper Deck


Is this really a 1999 Upper Deck Piece of History 500 Home Run Club card of Hank Aaron, Babe Ruth, and Willie Mays? Well, according to Beckett they believe it is, “It was a new one on us, too. We’d never even heard of it until recently, when it was brought to our attention by a prominent East Coast dealer and that there were at least four of these cards in existence.”

The card is copyrighted with a 1999 copyright and has that same 1999 Upper Deck A Piece of History design, but Upper Deck didn’t include mention of this card in any sales material or press announcements back then, but Upper Deck  officials have confirmed that the card is legitimate and Beckett Select is auctioning off one of just five known copies in existence. For more on this card, check out the story at Beckett.
