1962 Gehl's Ice Cream Roger Maris
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,200
Superb example of New York Yankees star Roger Maris on a promotional card for Gehl's Gold-Mine brand ice cream. Maris, fresh off his record-breaking performance in 1961, was an ideal spokesman for the Milwaukee area company to promote its line of products. Maris appeared on six different cards, all of which were issued regionally. The offered example shows Maris holding his bat, with a facsimile message on front reading "To My Gold-Mine Pal/Roger Maris." The card measures 4 x 5 inches and is Excellent overall, with light wear at the corners and no creases or wrinkles. The blank reverse is entirely clean, with only a small stain present on the left edge. This is a very attractive example of this rare, regionally issued card featuring Roger Maris. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $1,200
