Early 1962 photograph showing the newest home run king in baseball, Roger Maris, as he relishes in his triumphs following his iconic 1961 season in which he bested Babe Ruth by smashing 61 homers. He was clowning for the camera while wearing the iconic "Sultan of Swat" crown. A fine image in great shape that is one of the few of its kind we have seen, this is a large version.
