Only a few short months after Maris broke Ruth's record, the humble hero was on hand for the 9th annual "Tops in Sports" banquet held by the Maryland Professional Baseball Players Association. Maris fittingly signed this program on the fabulous "Sultans of Swat" inside-front-cover stat page that could easily be excised and framed for display—it's that good. Signatures average "8-10" overall on the VG program (vertical center fold) and lightly soiled unofficial ball. Full LOAs from JSA.
Program: Maris, Gentile, Triandos, B. Hitchcock, Cash
Ball: Maris, Gentile, Cash, Piersall, Lee MacPhail, Ford, T. Richardson, one other
