1961 NY Yankees vs Boston Red Sox October 1, 1961, ticket stub from the game Maris hit his 61rst home run. Maris' home run brought a Yankee 1-0 win and, more importantly, broke Babe Ruth's 34 year single season home run record of 60 set in 1927. Maris hit his bomb during his second at bat on a 2-0 count from Boston hurler Tracy Stallard. The stub itself has been graded, authenticated, and encapsulated by PSA GD 2. The stub was for section 21, box 133E, seat 5 for the season finale. The stub comes from the original owner who saw the game live. Also included is an original envelope from the Yankee Ticket Offices which has an attractive Spalding baseball advertisement on the reverse. The envelope is in EX condition with some light handling wear and a pencil written "Tickets-Maris Hit 61st Homer" notation.
