One of baseball's big-time home run blasters makes an appearance with this 8/18/69 issue of Sports Illustrated magazine. 1969 Was a big year for Major League ball, with an expansion to 24 teams and the creation of divisions. The Atlanta Braves took advantage of this new configuration, becoming the first team to win a West Division race. This put the franchise in the postseason for the time since 1958, when the team was still based in Milwaukee. This memorable season is rightfully honored with this Vol. 31, #8 issue of Sports Illustrated, which features a photo of Hank Aaron on the front cover, along with the caption "Henry Aaron Whips Atlanta Into It's First Pennant Drive". Aaron has prominently signed this magazine at lower left with ("9-10") potency by means of a black felt-tip pen and his autograph is accompanied by a JSA basic cert/sticker. The magazine itself is graded (6.0) by CGC, with the label notations "Off-White to White Pages" and "Hank Aaron written on cover in marker, Sticker attached to cover", which are references to Aaron's autograph and the JSA certification sticker.
