Lot 1241: 1961 Ruth, Maris and Mantle Pin-Back Button
Celebrating the 1961 campaigns of “the M&M Boys” (Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris) to break Babe Ruth’s 34-year-old record for most home runs hit in a single season, this over-sized (6”) pin-back button groups these three together as “the greatest home run hitters.” Black print on yellow, button also reads, “Shooting for 61 in ’61,” and contains photographic images of each of these three legendary New York Yankee participants Still has original cardboard backing, this vintage souvenir has some foxing at the top and slightly at the bottom, which keeps this at a respectable VG.
