1961 Topps
Roger Maris

This card has all the makings of a poor old baseball card.

There are plenty of creases, some staining and what even appears to be pencil marks. It even has a little glue on the back. Oh, and it's off center.

But what a great card to have.

1961 was a banner year for Roger Maris as he would overtake Babe Ruth as the single-season home run king.

1960 wasn't such a bad year either: Maris was the AL's MVP that year, his first with the Yankees.

What a great card. Who cares about condition when you have a piece of history like that?
