    Description

    1979 Topps Thurman Munson #310, Signed, PSA Authentic. The August 2, 1979 news hit the Yankee faithful like the proverbial ton of bricks. Much like the Kennedy assassination, any Yankee fan who was active in his rooting that year remembers exactly where he was when he heard the news that Munson's plane had gone down and that their beloved team captain had not escaped the flames. The beating heart that had delivered his ballclub from its longest Championship cold streak since Babe Ruth led it to its first was suddenly stopped, and that year the second, even longer drought would begin. This was no coincidence. Despite an absence from Cooperstown, Munson remains one of the most significant Yankees in pinstriped history, and likewise remains the most sought after and valuable figure in the collectibles market of those players active within the past four decades.

    Here we are pleased to present one of the most significant Munson autographs to reach the auction block in recent years, one the very few 1979 Topps cards signed by the tragic star during the last months of his life. The autograph is applied in black felt tip ink that rates 7/10, the card itself exhibiting light corner touches but no distractions beyond the white borders. Encapsulated by PSA, Authentic.
