1965 Topps Tommie Aaron - Braves Card of the Day ⚾

Tommie is, obviously, the younger brother of the great Hank Aaron. There are many of us, and I’m including myself here, who don’t feel he ever got the shot he deserved at the big league level. It was difficult when compared to his big brother. Still, he did an excellent job as a minor league manager and a big league coach for well over a decade. His dream was to manage in the big leagues, and well, there were reasons that prevented that from occurring. (We all know what that is.) Tragically, he died from leukemia at the age of 45 in 1984.
