Rare Roger Maris Single Signed Baseball JSA. Additionally, many believe he is worthy of the Hall of Fame, especially in light of recent selections by various Veterans Committees. He was an accomplished player for certain: a 2X MVP winner, capturing the award consecutively in 1960 and 1961; 7-time All Star (in his 12-year career); 2-time RBI leader; gold glove winner; a member of 3 world championships, as well as 7 pennant winning teams.
Perhaps equally important, his number 9 is retired by the Yankees. He is enshrined in Monument Park at Yankee Stadium. Maris had been sick the last two years of his life and died at the young age of 51 on December 14, 1985. The hobby was still in its infancy and therefore he didnt attend shows and sign product in bulk, like his counterparts Mantle, DiMaggio, Mays and Williams.The autographs extant are from a few limited signing he did in the early 1980s and those he gratuitously penned for fans. Thus, locating a Maris single-signed baseball is not an easy task in today's collecting world. A large blue flare-tip Maris autograph stretches across the sweet spot of this Official American League Baseball. It's also a larger than usual example. Additionally, the Rawlings blue lettering is perfectly dark, with the AL President Mac Phail stamp fully intact. Still reasonably affordable, it is an essential element in completing the popular 1961 Yankee "singles" set, as well as the Yankee Retired Numbers set. Both sets are very popular with collectors. Prices have escalated steadily as a result and should continue to do so.
