Following Roger Maris' historic 1961 season, there was no shortage of companies seeking his endorsement, especially those whose products catered to children. Offered here is one of the more popular of those Maris products: the Roger Maris Baseball Game, issued by Play-Rite of Jeffersonville, Indiana, in 1962. What sets this game apart from all others we have seen is the extraordinary Near Mint condition of both the box and interior components. This game looks almost exactly as it did when it was plucked from the store shelf in 1962! Complete with its cards, cardboard players, and scorers. This is unquestionably the finest example we have ever seen and one that would be a welcome addition to any advanced baseball-game or Roger Maris collection. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
