Joining an already potent lineup and establishing himself as half of the productive “M&M” tandem, Roger Maris was portrayed on widely sought Topps collectibles. These oil-on-canvas paintings vividly recapture the 1960 Topps #565 Maris and 1961 Topps #2 Maris cards. The colorful depictions capture every last detail, right down to the shadows, uniform wrinkles and Maris’ hazel eyes. Both are firmly affixed to wood backings. The 1960 likeness (31-1/2 x 23-5/8”) is consistent with Topps’ horizontal format from that year, while the ’61 portrayal measures 23-5/8 x 31-1/2”.
