Thurman Munson killed... NY Yankees...
Item # 671263
August 3, 1979
DAILY NEWS, New York City, August 3, 1979
* Cather Thurman Munson
* New York Yankees baseball
* Jet airplane crash disaster
The front page has a nice banner headline: "AIR CRASH KILLS YANKS' MUNSON" with a photo of the crash scene and another smaller one of Munson. (see) Nice for display. First report coverage continues on page 3 with 2 other related photos. The back page has a larger photo of Munson with heading: "'One Helluva guy'" Great to have in this famous New York City tabloid publication. Rare as such.
Complete with all 68 pages, small tear along the right blank margin, tiny piece torn away along the top margin of the back page, generally very nice.
