Lot 292
Description: Grouping of handwritten notations and writings by Thurman Munson c.1979. Recognized as a warrior on the field, Munson's hard nosed style of play and off the field leadership reinforced his position as the Captain of the New York Yankees. Though the embodiment of professional baseball, Thurman Munson was also a man of other interests. According to Diana Munson, one of Thurman's favorite evening pastimes was to jot down various writings and "doodles" in relation to his many activities. The offered lot includes (11) total pages (legal size) of notations, doodles, and numbers, with content ranging from real estate holdings, client contacts, and names such as Bob Lemon and Ed Sullivan. Most interestingly, Thurman has "signed" his name in blue ink (printed format) on one of the pages and again on the same page with last name only. Just below the two "autographs" is a date of "Aug. 3rd" which has been underlined three times by Munson. Although it is unclear why this date was written, or for that matter underlined, it does represent the date just one day after Munson's tragic accident. Includes LOA from JSA (handwriting and printed autographs) and letter of provenance from Diana Munson: Range EX-NM
