    1961 Roger Maris Wire Photographs Lot Of 2. Roger Maris will forever be known as the man that took Babe Ruth's record. The man that changed the record books. Maris was hated, booed, cussed, and generally abused by the press and fans for his chase of the most well-known mark in all of baseball: Babe Ruth's sixty single season home runs. We offer a pair of photos of the newly crowned home run king from that historic season of 1961. Roger connected off Tracey Stallard on October 1st 1961. Each image shows Roger in civilian attire, and have N.E.A. stamps on the reverse with the dates of Oct 4, 61, and Oct 6, 61.
