This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
All are date-stamped to the historic 1961 season, with the exception of a poignant 1962 image of Maris with Babe Ruth's widow Claire. (The paper caption on the reverse reads, "Mrs. Ruth repeated how happy she was [that] both are considered records, Maris' in the extended schedule, and her husband's 60 home runs in 154 games.") The highlight here is Maris' record-breaking swing—where you can even see the No. 61 ball beginning its trajectory. (Heavy handling wear in upper-right corner.) Boston Herald provenance stickers adorn each reverse. Sizes are either 7" x 9" or 8" x 10". Condition averages EX/MT.
