ROGER MARIS (1934-1985), who played for the Cleveland Indians (1957-1958) and the Kansas City Athletics (1958-1959) before donning Yankee pinstripes in 1960, made baseball history on October 1, 1961, when he broke Babe Ruth's season home run record of 60 by hitting his 61st homer. Maris was named the American League's Most Valuable Player that year for the second consecutive time (1960, 1961), and he was also a member of the All-Star team (the third of his four appearances - 1959, 1960, 1961 and 1962). Maris, who also won the Gold Glove in 1960, played in five World Series with the Yankees (1960-1964). After being traded to the St. Louis Cardinals at the end of the 1966 season, he again played in the World Series in the last two seasons of his career (1967, 1968). Legendary Yankee slugger MICKEY MANTLE (1931-1995) accumulated a long list of accomplishments, finishing his 18-year career with 536 home runs and a .298 batting average. The switch-hitting "Commerce Comet" won three MVP awards and a Triple Crown (1956), and he contributed to 12 pennants and seven World Series titles in his first 14 seasons while establishing numerous World Series records, including most home runs (18). Mantle was inducted into the Baseball of Fame in 1974. HARMON KILLEBREW (1936-2011) played 21 seasons for the Minnesota Twins (1954-1974) before playing his final year for the Kansas City Royals in 1975. He was the American League's Most Valuable Player in 1969 and led the league in home runs in 1959, 1962-1964, 1967 and 1969, finishing with 573 for his career. Killebrew, who led the league in RBIs in 1962, 1969 and 1971, was an All-Star in 1959, 1961, and 1963-1971. He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1984.NORM CASH (1934-1986) played outfield and first base for the Chicago White Sox (1958-1959) before spending the remainder of his career with the Detroit Tigers (1960-1974). An All-Star in 1961, 1066, 1971 and 1972, Cash had one of his best years in 1961, when he led the league in batting average (.361) hits (193), times on base (326) and intentional walks (19). Cash played in two World Series - in 1959 with the White Sox and in 1968, when the Tigers beat the St. Louis Cardinals to become world champions. Outfielder ROCKY COLAVITO, born Rocco Domenico Colavito in 1933, was one of the Cleveland Indians' most popular players, in his 1955-1959 and 1965-1967 seasons with the team. A six-time All-Star (1959, 1961, 1962, 1964, 1965 and 1966), Colavito hit 42 homers in 1959, tying Harmon Killebrew for the AL title. The outfielder also led the AL in RBIs (108) in 1965. Colavito, who hit four consecutive home runs in one game (June 10, 1959), also played for the Detroit Tigers (1960-1963) and Kansas City Athletics (1964). Fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 16½x24¼.
