I picked up his rookie card recently off of Twitter from Breakout Cards. It's got a crease all the way across and a scuff mark below that and the corners and centering aren't prefect, but all of these issues combined put it in my price range.
Rog, as the back of his 1958 Topps card refers to him as, will forever be a part of baseball history for breaking Babe Ruth's single season home run record in 1961.
While certainly a part of baseball history, I don't think Maris will make the Hall of Fame this year or any year. His career numbers just don't warrant his selection, in my opinion. Let's look at the big three. Roger had a career .260 batting average, 275 home runs, and 850 RBI over his 12 year career. Those just aren't Hall of Fame numbers.
What do you think? Does Roger Maris get into the Hall of Fame?
