    Description

    1973 Topps Thurman Munson #142 PSA Gem Mint 10 - Pop Three! The August 2, 1979 news hit the Yankee faithful like the proverbial ton of bricks. Much like the Kennedy assassination, any Yankee fan who was active in his rooting that year remembers exactly where he or she was when they heard the news that Munson's plane had gone down and that their beloved team captain had not escaped the flames. The beating heart that had delivered his ball club from its longest Championship cold streak since Babe Ruth to its first was suddenly stopped. Despite an absence from Cooperstown, Munson remains one of the most significant Yankees in pinstriped history, and likewise remains the most sought after and valuable figure in the collectibles market of those players active within the past four decades. Offered is the illustrious 1973 Topps Thurman Munson card, which displays just the right registration to make this card look more like an art creation than a photograph. Graded PSA Gem Mint 10, this is one of only three cards to earn the ultimate PSA rating.
