Thurman Munson played his entire 11-year career for the New York Yankees. A perennial All-Star, Munson is the only Yankee ever to win both the Rookie of the Year and Most Valuable Player awards. He became the starting catcher late in the 1969 season, and played his first complete season in 1970, becoming Rookie of the Year. Considered the "heart and soul" of the Yankees, Munson became the first team captain since Lou Gehrig. He led the Yankees to three consecutive World Series, winning two of them in 1977 and 1978. Munson died tragically at the age of 32 in 1979. His number “15” has since been retired by the Yankees and will forever reside in Monument Park. Manuf: H&B Signature Model. Model Number: S44.
