Lot # 1058 (of 1560)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

Roger Maris Signed First-Day Cover Collection (11 Maris signatures)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,819

Collection of eleven 1983 Babe Ruth first-day covers, each signed by Roger Maris on the front. Maris has signed six of the envelopes in blue marker and the other five in blue ink, with each signature grading "10." All of the first-day covers feature Colorano silk cachets and have been postmarked July 6, 1983. Five different silk cachets images are represented (two groups of five different plus one triplicate). Maris, of course, was the first player to break Ruth's long-standing single-season home run record; therefore his signature on these 1983 Babe Ruth stamp first-day covers is quite apropos. Maris passed away just two years after these covers were issued and his signature today is one of the most desirable of all non Hall of Fame players. Each of the first-day covers (6.5 x 3.75 inches) remains in Near Mint condition. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Total: 11 signed first-day covers. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $3,819
