    Description

    1973 Thurman Munson Game Worn New York Yankees Pants. It was during an August 1, 1973 visit to Fenway Park that the two top catchers of the American League came to blows. With a tie score in the top of the ninth and Munson on third, Yankees manager Ralph Houk called for a suicide squeeze. But when shortstop Gene Michael whiffed on the bunt, Munson was left with no alternative but to barrel into BoSox backstop Carlton Fisk in an unsuccessful attempt to knock the ball loose. What followed was a ten-minute bench-clearing brawl that ended with both catchers' ejection.

    Could these be the pants Munson was wearing for the assault of his Hall of Fame counterpart? Road grey garment exhibits fine wear and "Munson 73 Set 3 22" embroidered swatch at interior waistband, along with a custom-size "Wilson 35" label. Handwritten name and numbers relate to secondary wear, as was common for the time. A rare opportunity to own a piece from the beloved captain's wardrobe. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
