DescriptionRoger Maris Signed Photograph.
Though it could be done, it would be tough to argue that one ballplayer's legacy is more tied to a single number than Roger Maris is to the number 61 (or 61*, depending on how you fall on certain issues). For thirty-four years Babe Ruth held the single-season home run record, until a perfect storm developed – including an expanding American League, longer season, and one of the best lineups the game has ever seen – and Maris felled the great Bambino in the final game of the season.
Offered is an 8x10" photograph of Maris in Yankee pinstripes, likely during spring training, which has been signed in bold black marker. The reverse of the image is blank and only light wear is shown throughout. Pre-Certified

Sunday Internet Sports: These auctions are presented only online and bidding is only taken through our website. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 15 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 15 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:03, the new end time for that lot would become 10:18. If no other bids were placed before 10:18, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 15 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:15. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
