The headliner here is a rather extraordinary 9 x 13-1/4" close-up facial study of Roger Maris unlike any oversized Maris portrait we've ever seen before. Image quality is such that you can actually see his stubble follicles, lip lines and teeth. An expansive Sports Illustrated stamping on the reverse credits Scharfman and gives the details as "10-6-60...1960 World Series." Also featuring the full S.I. stamp is a Fall Classic action shot of Whitey Ford from two days later. The remaining quartet credits Scharfman and features one photo of Maris fielding in '63 and three photos of Ford pitching in '61. EX condition overall with mounting remnants on reverse.
