If you’ve never seen the movie 61*, I advise you get yourself a copy from the video store tonight.
The movie details Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle’s race to 61 homers in 1961. A lot of it shows how the media treated both players differently and how fans felt about both too.
For your information, I have two more cards left from this era. Click here for a full archive of all the old cards I've featured this summer and fall.
