Large 1961 action photograph of Yankees slugger Roger Maris as he chased down Babe Ruth during his epic season. Here Maris tries to put another one in the seats but comes up a bit short, striking out against the Athletics. Taken by noted photographer Frank Hurley of the New York Daily News and with a huge paper caption on the back, this is a crystal clear image that grades nearly perfect and is being offered here for the first time ever!
