#8185 - 1961 Topps #2 Roger Maris Signed Card - PSA/DNA GEM MINT 10 Estimate: $1,500+

The 1961 baseball season was one of the best of all time. One of the msot exciting years in baseball with the great Babe Ruth home run chase between New York Yankees teammates Mickey Mantle and and Roger Maris.

Each of the established sluggers had won an AL MVP award (Mantle had already won 2), and each was off to a hot start hitting home runs during the 1961 season. As injuries down the stretch pushed the beloved Mantle out of the race, Maris continued slugging away when he finally connected for #61 in the final game of the season.

We present this 1961 Topps Roger Maris card #2 which is graced by a flawless blue felt tip PSA/DNA GEM MT 10 signature, obtained in person by the original owner decades ago. The card itself is a very well-centered example of one of Maris' most popular cards and is in EX to EX-MT condition overall. Maris' early passing (d.1985), leaves the hobby short of signatures on his most desirable baseball cards. The ultimate Roger Maris New York Yankee autographed baseball card with one of the most coveted signatures of any modern-era, non-Hall of Famer. Graded by PSA/DNA GEM MINT 10.
