Roger Maris - 61st Home Run
October 1, 1961

It was an incredible season, with an incredible finish. For an entire summer, Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris went toe-to-toe in the race to surpass Babe Ruth's seemingly untouchable single-season home run record. The two Yankee teammates - roommates, no less! - battled each other, as well as long-time Babe fans who passionately wanted his record to stand. Despite media and fan pressure that caused his frail nerves to buckle, and his hair to fall out, the humble Maris overcame the odds and stroked his record 61st Home Run on the final day of the season. It was a dramatic shot through the approaching late-afternoon darkness that proved to be the only run in a 1-0 Yankees shutout over the Boston Red Sox. This rare, historic photographic image tells the whole story - the fans at Yankee Stadium sit in the background with seeming indifference as Maris, the umpire, and the Red Sox catcher watch the ball carry into the bleachers in right field. The look on Maris' face, and his body language, are priceless - as if he just homered by accident, and is saying to himself, "damn, I can't believe I just did that to myself." Yet it was a seminal moment in the history of baseball, another glorious moment in the life of the Yankees, and the penultimate day in the career of a reluctant hero. For the first time ever, this Hall of Fame moment is available for your wall in this sharp, beautiful poster design. A must for any true fan, worthy of a nice frame and a prominent place on the wall of home or office!
