Lost in the 1961 home run chase between Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris is the fact that these players, especially Mantle, were multi-dimensional players who did more to win games than send balls into the seats. Mantle was also a terror on the bases as seen here, stealing a base against the Minnesota Twins. A bold and clear image in great shape, this shows the umpire signaling safe and the Twins second baseman floored by Mantle's intensity. Issued by the New York Times and stamped on the back.
