Description

One of the most respected players in baseball during the Seventies, Thurman Munson’s death in 1979 left a void that may never be filled in the Bronx. With players like Reggie Jackson around him, Munson excelled both behind the plate and at the bat. Presented is a single-signed, cream-colored cork and rubber center Major League ball signed by the Yankee captain on the side panel. The signature was penned in red ink and includes a very rare inscription, New York Yankees, beneath his signature (“7”). Munson single-signed baseballs are on most collectors’ wish lists for several reasons, but there are few authentic examples to fill the increasing demand. The unofficial baseball is lightly toned and grades a (“6”) with a small rust colored marking directly below Munson’s signature. COA from James Spence Authentications.
