A seven-time All-Star and two-time World Series champion, Thurman Munson was named the first New York Yankees captain since Lou Gehrig. Munson won the American League Rookie of the Year, AL MVP and has his No. 15 retired by the team. Munson was tragically killed in a plane crash in 1979. Presented is likely one of Munson’s first Yankee jerseys that was sourced from a New York police officer who Munson gifted the jersey to which we were told by our consignor. On the front left tail is the Spalding manufacturer’s tag with a box tag reading the size “44”. Adjacent below is the year “67” embroidered and a tag with washing instructions and an attached flag tag reading “SET 1 1967”. Inside the rear collar is a strip tag reading the player name “Tresh”. Handwritten in the collar is the player number “15” and additional notations in heavily faded marker. On the left chest is the Yankees interlocking “NY” logo and on the back is the player number “15”. All numbering and lettering is done in navy blue felt. The MLB “100th ANNIVERSARY” patch added to the left sleeve in 1969 appears originally added and modern day reinforced. Tom Tresh was traded from the Yankees on June 14th, 1969 to the Detroit Tigers. Munson made his debut with the team on August 8th, 1969. It was common for the Yankees to give recycled jerseys to minor league call ups. Given the timeline of Tresh’s trade and Munson’s call up this is likely one of Munson’s first jerseys if not his first pinstripe with the Yankees. The jersey lines up well with Munson’s 1970 Topps rookie card. Inside the waistband of the pants is the Spalding manufacturer’s tag size “36” and a strip tag reading “Burbach 50 69 36 27” with an attached flag tag reading “SET 1 1969”. The player number “15” is handwritten inside the waistband in black marker. Also included are a pair of socks. This uniform is properly tagged, was presented to us as game-used and in our opinion shows excellent multi player use. Accompanied by a LOA from the family of the NY police officer who received the uniform from Munson.
