Yankee fans of the 1970s, this poster will give you chills. When Thurman Munson entered the league, the Bronx Bombers were a shell of their former selves. After a decade of outstanding achievements, including the 1970 AL Rookie of the Year award, three Gold Gloves, the 1976 AL MVP award, being named Captain of the team, and winning two World Series Championships, Munson was acknowledged as the glue that held the team together and led them back to baseball's elite. Then, on that ill-fated off-day in August 1979, it all came to an end - and wouldn't you know it, the Yankees did not win the championship for another 17 years.
This brilliant poster, exclusive to SportsPosterWarehouse.com, is a haunting tribute to the fan-favorite who played baseball EXACTLY as it was meant to be played. Undoubtedly, this sepia-toned beauty pictures Thurman exactly as you remember him, strapped into his catcher's gear at Yankee Stadium, with his famous gameday scowl planted firmly on his mug. From Photofile's incredible Legends series, this image has never before been available in poster size! A beautiful full-sized addition to the wall of any fan of classic baseball. Printed from the original photographic negative, and complete with official MLB Properties serialized hologram, this is both a stunning piece for fans, and a valuable collector's item for years to come.
