After Roger Maris tied Babe Ruth's single-season home run record on September 26, he was kept out of the lineup on the 27th.  In the September 28th game against Boston, Maris drew two walks in four plate appearances, and drew a third on the 29th, as Boston pitchers were extra careful not to serve up the record-breaker.  On the last game of the season, October 1, in the fourth inning off Boston's Tracy Stallard, Maris connected for his 61st blast, breaking Ruth's record to the delight of Yankee fans.

Authenticated and encapsulated by PSA, the stub memorializes that important event.  Well-worn, with creases, edge and surface wear, the presentation remains strong, one of the most important and desirable ticket stubs in the hobby.
