Black and white publicity photograph of Roger Maris, Willie Mays, and Mickey Mantle holding their bats.
Photograph signed: "Roger Maris", "Willie Mays" and "Mickey/Mantle". B/w, 9x6¾. In 1961, ROGER MARIS broke Babe Ruth's single season record when he hit 61 home runs. The record had stood for 34 years. Maris, American League MVP in 1960 and 1961, still holds the A.L. record for most home runs in one season. His 37-year-old major league record was broken in 1998 by National Leaguer Mark McGwire (70). McGwire's record was broken three years later by Barry Bonds (73). WILLIE MAYS was the prototype of the complete player; he hit for average and power, ran the bases with intelligence and speed, played a spectacular centerfield, and possessed a great arm. Mays was also remarkably durable, playing in at least 150 games for 13 consecutive seasons. He was an All-Star in 1954-1973 and received Most Valuable Player Awards in 1954 and 1965 and Gold Gloves in 1957-1968. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1979. On May 4, 1966, Mays passed Mel Ott's 19-year-old record of 511 National League home runs and finished his career with a total of 660, ranking him third on the all-time list behind Henry Aaron's 755 and Babe Ruth's 714. He retired with a .302 batting average. MICKEY MANTLE 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). 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 Hall of Fame in 1974. Fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 15x20½.
