Roger Maris New York Yankees Game Worn Batting Helmet

Roger Maris New York Yankees Game Worn Batting Helmet

Roger Maris turned the baseball world upside down in 1961 when he shattered Babe Ruth's long-standing record for home runs in a season with 61, and he wore this fiberglass helmet in the batter's box around that time. The helmet shows great wear and still has the manufacturer, American Baseball Cap's label affixed inside, displaying the size 7 3/8. Also inside is a vintage strip of athletic tape with bold black magic-marker print that reads "MARIS" along with his uniform number of 9. The NY logo on the front appears to have been touched up with white paint, perhaps by the team. Maris played 12 seasons in the majors but will always be remembered for his standout '61 season that propelled the mild-mannered man into the spotlight.
