The 1961 season is one of the most famous in baseball history, especially if you were a fan of the New York Yankees. It had to feel like nobody wanted it to end, but if you were a fan of the New York Giants football team, you were ready to turn the page and get Yankee Stadium ready for some football! The offered image is dated just a few weeks before Roger Maris would make history on this very site, but the framework was already set to move on from baseball and into the NFL season. The goal posts are up and the media guide is being displayed artfully in the foreground. Taken by noted photographer Frank Hurley (who would take the most famous shots of Maris' 61st homer a few weeks later) this is a unique new discovery that is being offered here for the first time ever!
