    Description

    Roger Maris Signed Index Card. Offered is a a beautiful signed index card from Yankee legend Roger Maris. A Yankees sticker has been affixed handsomely next to the blue sharpie signature. The year a record was broken, hearts were broken, and a man's life was changed forever. Roger Maris will forever be known as the man that took Babe Ruth's record. The man that changed the record books. Maris was hated, booed, cussed, and generally abused by the press and fans for his chase of the most well-known mark in all of baseball: Babe Ruth's sixty single season home runs. Maris began the year as just another hard-hitting Yankee. If anyone, his battery mate, and media darling, Mickey Mantle was scheduled to be the one to take over the spot on the all time homer list. "Mick" was loved by the fans and the press, Maris was not. In fact, whenever Maris hit one of his home runs, he was quickly reminded that it was only because Mantle was behind him that he even saw a good pitch to hit. Maris suffered greatly during the season. He actually lost his hair and had his and his families lives threatened. A tremendous addition to any collection. JSA Auction LOA.
