    Description

    1961 Roger Maris 61st Home Run Original News Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1. The swing that broke the Babe's single-season record is one of the prettiest ever caught on film, and this is the definitive example thereof, shot in landscape format with the ball still in the frame at upper right. Verso bears original paper caption dated October 1, 1961, the day the record fell, with "United Press International" stamping. Dimensions 8x10". Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, Type 1.
