    Roger Maris Vintage Signed Photograph The defining image of the man who successfully chased down the Babe in 1961 bears a very strong (9/10) blue ink signature which certainly dates from the era, if not from the actual season of glory. There is, after all, some evidence to support that it does date to the Year of the Chase, as a child's vintage penned notation on back reads, "September 11, 1961, Charlotte, N.C., Griffith Park, Roger Maris, Jim Gentile, Harmon Killebrew." Of course it's impossible to deduce what these notations mean - -Maris was neither in Charlotte, nor at the Senators' Griffith Stadium on the date in question, but the mere existence of an obviously vintage-penned "1961" here is a fairly strong indication that it was signed that season. Regardless, Maris signed photographs are quite precious, and strong vintage specimens carry a premium. LOAs from James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA and Mike Gutierrez/MGA.
