Incredible and detailed photograph from August 16, 1961 showing Roger Maris as he crosses the plate with his 47th Home Run of the season where he is met by... Mickey Mantle of course. A museum quality image picturing the two superstars of baseball in their iconic season. Mantle's number 7 is clearly visible as is the face of Maris as he humbly accepts their congratulations is bowed as was his way! One of the best M&M Boys photos we have ever seen, this is a nearly perfect example from the Associated Press and with a full paper caption as well. A work of baseball art from the most important home run chase in the history of the game!
