Henry Louis Aaron is widely considered one of the greatest baseball players of all time. During his professional career, Aaron performed at a consistently high level for an extended period of time. He hit 24 or more home runs every year from 1955 through 1973, and is the only player to hit 30 or more home runs in a season at least fifteen times. He is one of only four players to have at least seventeen seasons with 150 or more hits. Aaron made the All-Star team every year from 1955 until 1975 and won three Gold Glove Awards. In 1957, he won the National League Most Valuable Player Award, while that same year, the Braves won the World Series. Aaron's consistency helped him to establish a number of important hitting records during his 23-year career. These “adidas” manufactures cleats are Milwaukee Brewers colors, blue with yellow trim. The laces are white and intact. The tongue of the right shoe has been cut just above the laces. Hank’s number “44” appears on the outer heel of each in black marker. Stamped in gold on the side of each is “adidas M.V.P.” On the bottom of each is size “11-1/2” stamped. The cleats show nice game-use and with the exception of the tongue being cut appears to have no further alterations of any kind. Hank was known to have worn a different manufacturer’s cleats the prior season. They are accompanied by a letter of provenance which states, in part “these shoes were given to me by a family member of Hank Aaron’s…they are the real deal.”
