    1970 Topps Thurman Munson Signed Rookie Card #189 PSA/DNA Authentic. Autograph enthusiasts seeking a stiff challenge have recently innovated a new collecting subgenre: signed rookie cards. For many athletes who passed away prior to the memorabilia boom that began in the early 1980's, finding any autographed trading card is a tall order, and that is definitely the case with the tragic figure who stars in the upper half of this slab of cardboard. We're aware of only one other signed rookie from Munson, and that one was signed on the back. Certainly this is the superior specimen, the blue ballpoint signature rating a technical 9/10, but struggling a bit for contrast against the dark background. The card itself exhibits typical corner wear but no wrinkles, creases or stains to hamper the first-rate aesthetics. Encapsulated "Authentic" by PSA/DNA.
