Description

With the stroke of his majestic pen, Roger Maris (d.1985) created a coveted baseball collectible by inscribing the offered single-signed ONL Giles sphere to a fortunate recipient. Before drug-enhanced caricatures masquerading as baseball players surpassed his 1961 home run milestone, Maris ingratiated himself with generations of fans through his honest and humble demeanor. Such appreciation has translated to the secondary market as autographed Maris material continually fetches substantial sums. This playing era 1963-1969 Giles orb is penned on a side panel in blue ink with the endorsement registering a strong (“8-9”) in both strength and clarity. A personalized To Ricky Best of Luck salutation is also penned in the slugger’s hand. Bold trademark stampings offset very mild and uniform toning. This museum quality piece comes with a full photo LOA from JSA.
