Legendary June 2009
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
Somehow, in 1961, Roger Maris overcame all adversities—even a challenge by his teammate Mickey Mantle—to break the most cherished record in baseball: Babe Ruth's 60 home runs in a season. As a lasting memento of the man and his mighty feat, here offered is original, EX condition scorecard (with regionalized soiling and light evidence of handling) for the final series of the 1961 season. The line-up corresponds to the actual game in which Maris hit his 61st home run (with Stafford pitching for the Yankees and Stallard for the Red Sox).
