NOTES:
 
    The Roger Maris Official Zipee Practice Baseball No. 3143 was manufactured by the New York based, Transogram Co. Inc. The Baseball sized Zipee practice ball was also made for Softball, No. 3149. From 1962-1969 Transogram produced a number of plastic Bat'N'Ball sets and Zipee balls that featured the head shot endorsements of star players of the day such as; Willie Mays, Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris, Harmon Killebrew, Frank Robinson, Dick Groat, Jim Gentile, Ernie Banks, Rocky Calavito, and Tommy Davis.

The front of the retail hang card attached with three staples to the poly bag that holds the ball, reads: "Roger Maris" in script, at the top, with a Roger Maris head shot to the right, with a red background (the Softball is green). Inside a white strip below, reads: "OFICIAL Zipee, PRACTICE," and below that with a black background "BASEBALL" in white print.

The back of the Hang Card at the top reads: "ROGER MARIS" says..." and to the right is the "Transy King Of Toys Logo" Bellow reads: "Zipee is the PRACTICE BASEBALL, with "PLAY CONTROL," The Zipee true-flight baseball can't be hit too far (about 125 feet when batted) and thus doesn't require too much chasing out of bounds. Because of the special holes in Zipee, you have "Built in" Play control and can pitch a curve ball. Ideal for safe backyard play or at parks and beaches. (it floats too)." The bottom legal line reads: "Copyright MCMLXI Transogram Co. Inc.  Manufactured by Transogram Co. Inc., NY, Factories Easton.PA, Sturgis MICH. Marston, MO."
