Two weeks after the 25 year-old Roger Maris was traded from the Kansas City Athletics to the New York Yankees, the young slugger found himself back in his hometown of Fargo, North Dakota. Dated December 23, 1959 the offered “All-Star Wrestling” card was endorsed by Maris (d.1985) as he witnessed the event at the Fargo Auditorium. The obverse of the approximately 4-1/2 x 7" flier details the matches, complete with pencil notations. The early Maris endorsement is placed on the bottom reverse in vintage pencil, with the autograph grading (“7”). Although there exists multiple surface folds and reverse discoloration, this interesting relic still exhibits impressive eye appeal. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentications.
