For all the accolades that Roger Maris received during the 1961 season in which he blasted 61 home runs to beat Babe Ruth's record, his fielding was overlooked. Here he shows off an incredible catch that not only robbed a home run, but saved the game for the Yankees. Any photograph of Maris from 1961 is sought after, but this is the best showing him in the field that we have ever seen. Issued by the United Press and stamped on the back with a nice paper caption as well.
