As the hysteria heightened over Maris’ and Mantle’s dual assault on the single-season home run standard, fans of all ages joined in the daily watch of the fence-clearing Yankees. Issued during that memorable summer, this Maris-Mantle “Home Run Twins” children’s cap is a rare survivor. The blue nylon-like accessory (red versions were issued, as well) features a patch affixed to the front center, displaying images and facsimile signatures of the sluggers. The original tag remains, as does the black leather sweatband and elasticized back. The item shows heavy wear with partial separation of the patch.
