Ten/One/Sixty-One – Roger Maris’ 61st Home Run Captured by Bill Purdom.

Lot 171. Ten/One/Sixty-One – Roger Maris’ 61st Home Run Captured by Bill Purdom. On Oct. 1, 1961, in the final game of the season, Yankees slugger Roger Maris blasted a pitch from Tracy Stallard into the seats in right field. It was Maris’ 61st home run, one more than Babe Ruth swatted in his best home run season, 1927. Purdom, a member of the Bill Goff stable of sports artists, faithfully captures the moment in this 21 5/8” x 29 ¼” color lithograph signed by the artist. He even shows a field-level auxiliary scoreboard that presents Maris as the right fielder. Actually, as the large Ballantine scoreboard shows, Maris played center field that day. Photographic evidence supports this representation. The lithograph, #457 of 600, which is rolled, has a 3 ½” crease to the left of Maris’ feet, a couple of minor creases in the image area, edge creases and minor tape on the back that was used to attach it to a wall. Matted and framed, it will display very well. With copies of this lithograph being offered elsewhere for as much as $1,200, this copy is well worth our
Winning Bid $1,119.
