Large and beautiful 1961 photograph from the All-Star game in San Francisco showing the two biggest names in baseball, whose home run chase was exciting the entire World. Known as the "M&M Boys", Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris are posing in uniform at the batting cages, but recognizing that another "M Boy" was worthy of inclusion into their club, Stan Musial of the Cardinals. An oversized and completely vintage work of photography, the image is crystal clear and bold, presenting here in fine condition overall. A small strip of tape on the back from mounting is not visible from the front and only some extremely mild handling wear from being in a newspaper archive keeps this from being a perfect 10/10. At over 11 inches long, this is one of the most impressive 1961 Mantle and Maris images we have ever handled!
