See a Picture of this Item 62 1975 Thurman Munson Gold Glove award. Rare 1975 Thurman Munson Gold Glove Award. While Thurman Munson's accolades and accomplishments are often in relation to his clutch hitting and clubhouse leadership, defensive play was never a liability for Thurman. Along with Carlton Fisk and Johnny Bench, Thurman Munson was regarded as one of the finest defensive backstops of his era. Munson's impressive career defensive statistics clearly illustrate his prowess behind the plate in an everyday role for eleven years: .982 lifetime fielding percentage, 6253 putouts, and only 127 errors in nearly 1,300 career games. One of the legendary stories relating to Thurman's defensive career occurred during the 1971 season, in which he committed only one single error. As unbelievable as the statistic is, this error was not executed on a routine passed ball or errant throw, but because a runner knocked Thurman unconscious at home plate dislodging the ball. Munson was bestowed with the pinnacle of defensive accolades, the Rawlings Gold Glove Award, for three consecutive American League seasons, from 1973 through 1975. The offered award dates to the 1975 season with the award itself measuring an imposing 16" tall by 18" long. Wooden plinth style trophy base features applied brass placards with image of Munson and titling having crossed bat supports holding two gold painted baseballs. Trademark Rawlings gold painted "Major League" model catcher's mitt resides in the center. The award remains in superlative original condition with minimal age or surface wear. Hunt Auctions was honored to conduct the Thurman Munson Collection auction on behalf of the Munson family in 2008. This particular specimen was retained by the family and now joins his 1974 Gold Glove award (sold in 2008) as the only two examples having entered the marketplace. Very significant award from one of the most revered players of the 1970s era originating directly from Munson's personal collection. Includes letter of provenance from Diana Munson: NM ($50,000-$75,000) $95,000.00

Cleat marks and a light coat of pine tar are player specific characteristics and highly desirable traits on a Munson game bat. An included letter of provenance relays that the bat was given by Munson to a family friend, Lester, who had been diagnosed with lymphoma and was then confined to a hospital bed. During an October 6, 1978 phone call Munson asked Lester if a homerun would help to ease his suffering; -Of course+ came the reply. In the bottom of the 8th inning that night at Yankee Stadium Thurman stepped up to the plate and hit a game winning homerun which kept the Yankees season alive and advanced them to the final and deciding game four. The (475) foot shot is said to have been the longest homerun of his career and cleared Monument Park at Yankee Stadium. Once back in Canton, Ohio Munson visited and presented Lester with the bat he had used which has remained within his family until this time. A review of game footage asserts that an Adirondack bat was used (blue ring can be seen) and a letter from Diana Munson confirms the friendship that Lester and Thurman shared. An outstanding piece of Yankee history and offered for the first time at public auction.

See a Picture of this Item 97 Fine Lefty Grove professional model glove attributed to his 300th win season. Rawlings Ken Keltner model right handed glove displaying considerable usage wear originates from the Grove Family Collection and was the only example that was kept from his playing days. The name "Gove" is interestingly misspelled on the wrist strap. Piece of the webbing has replaced lacings mentioned for accuracy only. An image of Grove taken on March 11, 1941 during Red Sox Spring Training (Corbis #BE050890) appears to show the Hall of Famer wearing what may be this glove or one which is nearly identical. The Keltner model was a top of the line professional quality glove which was produced by Rawlings from 1940 to around 1951 and an accompanying letter of provenance from Grove's grandchildren identifies the offered example as having been worn in 1941 specifically; the season in which he recorded his 300th and final win.

The glove originates from the Michael Lopota collection and includes a copy of a handwritten letter from Hooper reading in part, "The glove which I sent you recently under separate cover was one worn out by me. However I am not sure whether it was while I was with the Boston Red Sox or the Chicago White Sox..."

See a Picture of this Item 99 Christy Mathewson attributed professional model glove c.1905-1910. Wright & Ditson brand left handed glove is a top of the line split finger model with 2.5" web joining thumb to forefinger. A well preserved manufacturers label remains in place on the wriststrap and there is some general usage and mild age related wear. Included letter of provenance from a Mathewson descendant relays that the glove "was owned and used by my great-uncle Christy Mathewson. I have owned this glove since about 1940 when it was given to me as a Christmas present by my great-aunt Jane (Christy's wife)...aunt Jane specifically mentioned that this was a glove that Christy had actually played with while a member of the New York Giants..." Not having a sense of the historical or monetary value until many years later, he goes on to state that he played with the glove on occasion and there are some faint scratched in initials which are likely the result. Mathewson remains a baseball immortal; revered as one of the game's most dominant pitchers with career statistics that rank him among the best to have ever played. Substantive pieces related to his career are both notably rare and highly desirable with the offered among the most important we have handled.
