    1961 Mickey Mantle & Roger Maris Original News Photograph from The Gene Kirby Collection. A recognizable pose from the two leading men of one the most memorialized seasons in baseball history. So much so that Hollywood produced a movie about the pair the following year. The Yankees won 109 games and the World Series. Maris surpassed Ruth with sixty-one home runs and Mantle was close behind with fifty-four. Here we see both pinstriped men posing for the paparazzi in the Bronx during the intense and pressure-filled summer when the race to Ruth was at its height. "L-R Mickey Mantle & Roger Maris, New York Yankees 1961" neatly penned on the verso with some tape remnants along the borders, the glue from which is visible on the front. Approximately 8x10". Letter of provenance from Gene Kirby's daughter.
