Featured is a Roger Maris autographed index card. This card has been hand signed by Maris, and comes slabbed and authenticated by PSA/DNA. Maris set the MLB record for home runs during the 1961 season with 61 of them, breaking Babe Ruth's single-season record of 60 home runs in 1927. This record was challenged by then-baseball commissioner Ford Frick (who had been a friend of Babe Ruth), who said that Maris needed to break the record in 154 games instead of the current schedule of 162 games. His accomplishment of 61 home runs in a season came back to the forefront in 1998, when the home run record was broken by Mark McGwire and later that same year by Sammy Sosa.
