Unusual collection of 32 wire photos featuring all-time-great, Hank Aaron. 21 of the included photos chronicle the final games leading up to Aaron tying, then breaking Babe Ruth's major league record of 714 career home runs. Most examples in this group remain bright-white, front and back, though four suffer from dark toning typical of some wire photos of the era. All would be considered Type 3 photos under PSA's authentication system as they were developed from wire transmissions, not original negatives. A collection that originates from the archives of Photo File, Inc. where it's remained for several decades until the time of this sale. 32 photos total.
