Back in 1961, up-to-the-minute media coverage meant syndicated radio news broadcasts and, for images, awaiting the following morning’s newspaper in which a wire service photograph revealed the previous day’s hero. One such nugget was the familiar likeness of Roger Maris and his bulging forearms as he eclipsed the single-season mark for home runs. This 8x10” black-and-white print of the October 1, 1961 AP wire photo is autographed by the self-effacing star. In black fiber tip marker, Maris’ scripting projects (“9-10”) potency and is preceded by his handwritten “Warmest Regards” salutation. Full photo LOA from JSA.
