    1961 New York Yankees Signed Program with Mantle & Maris. As the Yankees rolled into Baltimore in late April of 1961, the hard-slugging duo that would come to be known as "the M&M boys" had just one home run between the two of them, a tally to which they would not add during the three game series. But in this calm before the great storm, a young contestant in a singing competition taking place in the Yankees' hotel spotted the visiting ballplayers in the lobby and presented her event program for autographs. The blank back cover holds eleven autographs, most notably those of Mantle and Maris, who would claim this season as their own forever. Also here are Berra, Kubek, Boyer, Ditmar, DeMaestri and more. The program shows a degree of wear, with a horizontal center crease that barely nips the edge of Mantle's autograph. The catalog imagery should illustrate that these factors do little to detract from the fine eye appeal however. A great chance to own this important pair of autographs dating definitively to this historic year. LOA from PSA/DNA.
