    1977 Thurman Munson Double-Signed Mortgage Document for Land in Town Where He Died. Four-page legal-sized (8.5x14") document finds Munson and his wife Diana borrowing $200,000 for a plot of land in Canton, Ohio, eight miles from the field where the Yankees captain would die two and a half years later in the cockpit of his downed plane. Munson signs twice on page three, and his wife once, along with a pair of bank representatives. The final page likewise holds signatures of bankers and a notary public. All ink is 9/10 or better, and the document exhibits original storage folds but no condition problems worthy of mention.

    Munson's tragic, early death has made his one of the most difficult and coveted autographs of the post-war era, and this document that links the fallen Yankee to the geography of his passing is of particular importance. The lot originally entered the hobby as part of the 2008 auction of "The Personal Collection of Thurman Munson." Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
