This is the original locker nameplate from Thurman Munson’s last major league baseball game played before his tragic fatal plane crash that shocked New York Yankee and baseball fans everywhere.  The nameplate was retrieved from Thurman Munson’s locker in the visitor’s clubhouse at Comiskey Park by the Chicago White Sox Visitors Clubhouse Attendant after learning of the crash which occurred the day after the Yankees completed their 3 game series playing the Sox on August 1, 1979. Munson passed away the following day while practicing take-offs and landings in his small plane in his hometown of Canton, Ohio. The 12 X 2.75 handmade nameplate inscribed “Munson 15” in black marker is described in great detail in an accompanying letter from the attendant himself who retrieved the nameplate and describes assisting another staff member in making it by hand several years earlier for visiting players. New tags were made only when a roster change occurred on a team. In his letter of provenance, he also provides a timeline of the nameplate’s whereabouts’ since it was removed from Thurman Munson’s locker. All other effects of the visiting Yankee players had already been packed and forwarded to the team’s next destination.  An original color photograph of the Clubhouse attendant is also included. Munson started his career winning the American League Rookie of the Year Award in 1970; the 1st catcher to ever do so.  Munson received the first of three consecutive Gold Glove Awards in 1973 and in 1976 he won the American League MVP Award. To honor him, the Yankees have retired Munson's uniform number "15."  The significance of this artifact from Munson’s last game is something sure to be appreciated by any Munson or Yankee fan and most baseball fans everywhere.
