    Nooooooo! Like you, Hammerin' Hank was one of my childhood heroes as well. RIP!

    I remember having many Hank Aaron cards, they were easy to get back then. I bet that sucker would be worth a pretty penny today.

    I was too young to remember his playing days except for his retirement announcement but I will say he was and still is the home run king.

    No records set by Bonds should count. Nor should any by McGwire or Sosa or any of the other roiders.

    I wish McGwire would take his apology to the Maris family a step farther and say his and the other roiders stats should be wiped out. Should still be Aaron, Ruth and Mays.
