Roger Maris Signed 8x10 Auto Photo, 1961 NY Yankees. JSA
The True Single Season Home Run King*
Roger Maris was in the spotlight during perhaps the most exciting season in Major League history! That 1961 season will forever go own in baseball lore for the iconic home run race between Maris and Mickey Mantle, and to most baseball purists, Maris still holds the single-season home run record.
Sadly, the 1960 & '61 MVP passed away in 1985 before autograph shows became a common trend in commercial baseball collecting. Thus, his autograph on a premium item such as a ball, photo, bat or jersey is considered rare. This photo of Maris in pinstripes and the classic Yankee Stadium Facade backdrop is beautifully and boldly signed in blue felt tip marker, making it an obvious choice for the collector who doesn't own a Maris photo... yet! Comes with a Letter of Authenticity from JSA.
