Munson’s 1977 Mercedes Benz 450 SL was given to him by the New York Yankees in appreciation for his contributions to the team and his incredible athletic achievements. It is a true collector’s piece, custom detailed with Yankee pinstripes, baseball insignia and Thurman Munson’s initials. The car, in pristine condition, is a car collector and Yankees fanatic’s dream.
A number of other collectible, exotic and classic cars and motorcycles will also be featured in April 14’s auction, including the 1967 Ford Mustang hardtop that was previously owned by Republican presidential hopeful and former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich. All tickets sold in the live auction will benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation of New Jersey, an organization that grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience through hope, strength and joy.
“Bidders will not want to miss the chance to own a piece of baseball history,” said Rich Bodmer of iBid Auctions. “Yankees fans from the East Coast to the West Coast can bid online for Munson’s Mercedes and many other fine collectors’ pieces with astounding ease and efficiency through Proxibid. We are thrilled to partner with them as we recognize a legendary player in America’s favorite pastime.”
