Description

    1961 Roger Maris "Home Run #56" Original News Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1. This unique view of Maris's follow through after the blast catches him simultaneously dropping his bat, heading to first base and watching the ball's flight into the right field seats. The shot was home run #56 courtesy of Mudcat Grant. Behind Maris we also clearly see Cleveland Catcher Johnny Romano and the home plate umpire, both men looking to the heavens with Maris. Chicago Tribune NRMT issue measures 7x9" with TWO clippings attached to verso, both of which misidentify the image as being #61. Tremendous image from Maris' record-setting MVP and championship season. Full LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.
