    Circa 1971 Thurman Munson & Roberto Clemente Signed Index Cards Lot of 2. Two of the sport's most tragic losses are memorialized in this lot. Both were team leaders and prominent athletes with plenty of great playing days ahead of them, but both perished in plane crashes in the 1970's. Roberto Clemente picked up his 3,000th hit in his final at bat of 1972, and on the last day of that same year, went down off the coast of Puerto Rico en route to deliver aid to Nicaragua. Seven years later, New York Yankee All-Star Thurman Munson was practicing landing his aircraft and crashed, taking his life at the age of just thirty-two.

    Each player has penned his name in ballpoint pen to an index card (Munson) and an album page cut to the size of an index card (Clemente). The Munson is on the lined side of the card and rates an 8/10 while the Clemente has a few spots of toning and also rates an 8/10. Pre-Certified by PSA/DNA.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
