    Description

    c. 1960s Roger Maris Signed Valet Ticket. When we think of endurance feats in baseball, the mind automatically travels to the streaks of Gehrig and Ripken, or even Joltin' Joe's fifty-six games of unfailing production in 1941. But we'd argue that the grit and determination shown by this humble slugger from North Dakota during the fabled 1961 season deserves similar recognition. Where the aforementioned legends enjoyed the support of friends (and even some foes) during their paths to the record, Maris was treated as an interloper, a pretender to the crown, even in his home ballpark. In the race between Mantle and Maris, the fan support was a landslide for the former, a fact that makes the victor's accomplishment all the more impressive.

    Maris' passing in 1985, just before the memorabilia boom that would flood the market with autographs from Mantle, DiMaggio and Williams, has ensured that supply will always lag far behind demand for his signature.

    Here the once Home Run King signed this 1.75x3.5" valet ticket from Tower Parking in New York City in bold solid blue ballpoint ink. A single crease runs horizontally through the ticket with some age-related staining also visible. Pre-Certified by PSA/DNA.
