Another Cheap Ebay Pickup - 1971 Topps Thurman Munson

Hey guys,
Here is another card I got off of Ebay last week. I got this one REALLY cheap as well; a 1971 Topps Thurman Munson. This card is one of the tougher cards in the set, and I was able to get it for less than $10. Not bad, huh?
As you can see, the card is not MINT, but I don't care. I really like it and the photo is a great shot of the former Yankee Captain blocking the plate.
It is a shame that we all know what happened to Munson. I still think his brief career deserves a better look for the HOF. Funny, isn't it? 2 Munson posts in a week from someone who definitely hates the Yankees... I have no problem giving players credit where it is due. I definitely appreciate hard nosed players who play the game the right way, and Munson definitely epitomized that in his brief career.
