    1979 Thurman Munson Signed New York Yankees Bonus Check. Thurman Munson had to be in a celebratory mood at the beginning of the 1979 year. Imagine the thrill of opening up the mailbox and finding this check - for the hefty sum of $186,096.23. The check is drawn from the Yankees account and was issued 1/1/79. Munson signed the reverse in 10/10 black ballpoint. As we all know, the 1979 calendar year would be Munson's final as he perished in a plane accident during the All-Star break. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, Authentic.

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