Here’s a card that I feel came out nice, a “Future Stars” 1978 card for Yankees all-star catcher Thurman Munson:
Munson, who came out of Kent State in his native Ohio, became an instant
Yankee favorite, winning Rookie of the Year in 1970 while becoming the
leader of the organization on the field.
By 1976 he was a legitimate star, winning the American League Most
Valuable Player Award while leading the Yanks to their first World
Series since 1964, followed by consecutive championships in 1977 and
Of course, this was all shattered when he died while piloting a small
plane in August of 1979, shocking everyone, including myself as a
10-year old Yankee fan who idolized the catcher on a team filled with
big personalities, like Reggie Jackson, Rich Gossage and Sparky Lyle.
