The counterpart to the previous lot, this 1962 Topps card, #1 in the entire set honors Roger Maris in breaking Babe Ruth's single-season home run record and shows his "61" home runs in the reverse stats. Signed in person decades ago, this signature displays a flawless MINT 9 blue felt tip beautifully placed across the image of Maris' graceful home run swing. The card itself is in VG/EX overall condition, with good eye appeal. Tremendous example of a signed Roger Maris card, one of his most popular baseball cards, with a very bold "Roger Maris" MINT signature. Graded by PSA/DNA MINT 9.
