New York Yankees – “Safe at Home” Original Half-Sheet Movie Poster Display Feat. Autographed Cuts – Roger Maris Signed, Inscribed “Best of Luck” & Mickey Mantle Signed, Inscribed “My Best Wishes”
In 1961 the Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris, M&M Boys, became a household name. The home run race to beat Ruth’s record was not only closely watched but highly publicized. In the wake of this extremely intense and successful season, Columbia pictures filmed “Safe At Home.” Not an overly successful movie but it did show the M&M boys on the silver screen. Offered here is an original movie poster (half sheet) with mild but expected storage wear.
The poster is wonderfully matted and framed with an overall measurement 31″ x 37-1/2″.
It is highlighted by two cut signatures on parchment (each with 4″ measurements) featuring Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle (under their respective flag).
These gorgeous signatures were obtained at a party thrown by a fabulous woman named Ronelle who lived in Florida in 1961. It was during Spring Training she threw the party and had some notable attendees.
When asking the Yankee pair of Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle for their autographs, they expected a baseball to be produced. However she told them, “What kind of lady has a baseball lying around the house?”. She pushed forward her autograph album and told them to sign a page for her. Little did she know what kind of season 1961 would be for the dynamic pair. Indeed, both battled it out in the home run category with Maris claiming the overall title and leaderboard. Plus, the Yanks won the World Series title over the Reds.
Each signed their respective parchment in perfect blue ballpoint (“9-10”) with an inscription. Originally, they had personalizations, “To Ronelle” but were removed for display (they are included on back). Maris wrote, “Best of Luck”. Mantle signed his lengthwise, “My Best Wishes.” Overall perfect vintage autographs in a season to remember from a great pair. Includes full LOAs for authentication from JSA.
