Attractive and enormous 6" button celebrating the 1961 Mantle & Maris chase of Babe Ruth's single-season home run record.  Fans (and the media) began seriously watching Mantle and Maris as early as the beginning of June, watching the players rack up home runs through the summer.  Fans took sides, most rooting for the Yankee veteran Mantle.  The large celluloid button was sold to fans at Yankee Stadium souvenir shops and stands.  This example still retains its original cardboard backing, and does exhibit foxing throughout the front of the button.  Still, a very popular and highly collectible button in any condition.
