The card, which is printed on heavy stock with a "leather" finish, features an image of Maris hitting home run number 61, above which is the caption New York, October 1, 1961... " Maris has flawlessly inscribed the card "To Doug/Best Always/Roger Maris, " with both the salutation and signature grading "10. After his playing days, Maris started a new career. With the help of Anheuser-Busch, who owned the Cardinals (Maris' last team), Maris opened a beer distributorship in central Florida. Knowing the distributorship was owned by Roger Maris, customers would sometimes ask for a souvenir of the legendary slugger, so Maris had these advertising cards printed up to satisfy requests, which he sometimes signed.
Surprisingly, we have seen very few examples over the years, suggesting that the print run may have been very small. This is only the second signed example we have ever seen. Feel free to make offers on multiple items.
