    1976 Thurman Munson World Series Game Four Worn New York Yankees Jersey--Photo Matched! Unquestionably the greatest season in the tragedy-shortened career of this Big Apple icon, the 1976 Yankees campaign began with the announcement that Munson would serve as team captain, the first man to hold that title since the departure of Lou Gehrig. With the heavy weight of expectation on his shoulders, Munson proved the wisdom of the honor bestowed upon him, batting .302 with seventeen home runs and 105 RBI's to earn the American League MVP Award while leading the Yankees to their first World Series appearance since 1964.

    The presented home white pinstriped jersey exhibits marvelous game wear from that special season, and is photo matched to the fourth and final game of Fall Classic action by the experts at Resolution. Classic "NY" logo is applied over the heart, giving way to the fabled number "15" that would be retired from Yankees service the day after Munson died on the outskirts of an Ohio airport. Interior collar holds embroidered "Munson" swatch, with lower left front tail providing, "Wilson [size] 44" label and "76 1" swatch.

    Remarkably, this jersey (and the 1977 Munson pants likewise presented within this Signature auction) was purchased decades ago at a tri-state area garage sale for about $20 and subsequently worn by our consignor as a Halloween costume. It is unquestionably one of the most significant jerseys of the last half-century that Heritage has had the privilege to present. LOA from Heritage Auctions. LOA from Resolution Photomatching.
