    1970 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball with Rookie Year Thurman Munson.
    The legendary Yankee backstop exhibited such brilliance in his first full season of work that only a single ballot kept Munson from a unanimous Rookie of the Year victory. The twenty-three year old future team captain appears on a side panel of this OAL (Cronin) ball. Twenty-six fellow Bronx Bombers join Munson in 8/10 to 9/10 ballpoint. Munson's signature is a solid 8/10 with slight ink marks near the autograph. We can link the ball to 1970 because Pete Ward appeared in pinstripes that one season. Others who signed include: Howard, Murcer, Hansen, Lyttle, Stottlemyre, Houk, Bahnsen, Woods, McCormick, Clarke, Kline, Kenney, Aker, Hamilton, White, Howser, Cater, Michael, Klimkowski, Washlewski, McDaniel and three more. Letter of provenance from former Milwaukee County Stadium clubhouse manager. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.

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