Good Night Sweet Prince

This isn't exactly breaking news, but it's the first I've become aware of it. Thurman Munson's wife and kids have decided to auction off a lot of the late catcher's memorabilia. The auction will be in New York over the All Star game. Here is a link to the story in the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Some of the items will include World Series rings, a uniform, game worn undershirt, and the coup de gras, a custom Mercedes Benz convertible. Whether or not you have to be present or if you are able to bid over the phone/net I'm not sure. Just seems like a good opportunity for any Munson or Yankees fans who are interested. Even as a Yankee, Munson was always considered one of our own in Northeast Ohio. He is still loved here to a degree that no other Yankee has ever been or will ever be.
