Roger Maris shattered baseball's season home run record in 1961, and the Fargo, North Dakota native is immortalized in this lifelike painting by celebrated sports artist Arthur K. Miller. The framed piece measures 14.5" x 18" and depicts Maris in his home white pinstriped Yankees jersey and navy cap with white "NY." Maris' home run record stood for 37 years before Mark McGwire eclipsed it in 1998. Miller is the official artist of the Baseball Hall of Fame and specializes in portraits of players whose careers happened before the popularity of color photography.
