Description1959 Topps Roger Maris (White Back) #202 PSA Mint 9 - None Higher! Our offered card features Roger Maris, the man who broke Babe Ruth's single season home run record in 1961. Maris wasn't just a home run hitting specialist. The right fielder had good speed. He had a gun for an arm, and he could field. He was a very good, fundamentally sound player who, for a variety of reasons, had one out-of-this-world home run season. Maris first reached the majors with the Cleveland Indians in '57 and then was traded to Kansas City part way through the next season. The Yankees had an un-official working relationship with Kansas City so the Yankees obtained Maris for the 1960 season, and the rest as they say is history.
Graded PSA Mint 9. One of fifteen graded MINT with none rated higher.
Guide Value or Estimate: $4,000 - up.
Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. 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) 30 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 30 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 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 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 10:30. 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.
