    1970 Topps Yankees Rookies Thurman Munson #189 PSA NM 7. He's the most beloved Yankee lacking a bronze plaque at Cooperstown, and without that tragic afternoon in August of 1979 he probably would have gotten one. But now he belongs to the Bronx alone, shoulder to shoulder with his fellow pinstriped immortals in Monument Park, his number "15" properly removed from distribution within days of his fatal airplane crash.

    Here we find the first Yankee captain since Lou Gehrig, bound for the same tragic conclusion but thrilling fans with American League Rookie of the Year stats the year this cardboard commemorative was distributed.

    Offered is a 1970 Topps Yankees Rookies Thurman Munson #189 graded PSA NM 7.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $250 - up.

    Auction Type
    Sunday Internet Sports: These auctions are presented only online and bidding is only taken through our website. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 15 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 15 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:03, the new end time for that lot would become 10:18. If no other bids were placed before 10:18, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 15 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:15. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
