Fabulous handwritten letter from Thurman Munson dates to 1968, and has excellent baseball content. From July of that year, the second paragraph reads: “I was to join the Yankees at the end of the summer, but I am going to the reserves instead. That way I can play all year.” Signed “Thurman L. Munson” at the end. Red ball-point writing is very strong, at least a 9/10 overall. Unlined sheet has vertical mailing fold, otherwise Excellent. Includes original envelope also filled out in The Captain’s hand. Nicely framed with 8 x 10” color photo and his 1970 Topps rookie card. This is the earliest scripture we’ve encountered of this tough, gritty and beloved Yankee backstop.
