The Binge Part IV: Munsons!

The Cards: '72 and '74 Topps Thurman Munson

What'd I pay for them? $5.25 shipped

Why did I buy them? 1. It's Thurman friggin' Munson. 2. These were 2 of the last 3 base Topps cards (not counting Leaders, In Action, etc.) I needed of his. 3. I'm working on '72 Topps. 4. I'll eventually work more seriously on '74 Topps.

They're not the sharpest cards you'll ever see, but as I've discussed before, kids loved their Thurman Munson cards, so they beat the crap out of 'em. I got a '79 recently too (I'd only had Burger Kings prior to that), and I had to do a double take because it was actually in NM condition. I'm thinking of keeping it in my pants pocket for like a week so it's a real Munson card.
