Remembering Thurman Munson - the last photo

Monday was the 31st anniversary of the tragic death of Thurman Munson. And in Sunday's New York Post, there was an article about how a fan took the last photo of Thurman, a photo that was forgotten about for over 30 years.

This photo showed Thurman shaking Reggie Jackson after Reggie hit a homer in the August 1, 1979 game, the last game Munson played in. The New York Post article online doesn't include the picture, but it's online for purchase at the Photofile site, and you can see what it looks like there.

The fan who took the photo contacted "Munson" author Marty Appel a few months ago about the photo, and Appel brought the picture's existence to the attention of the New York Post. Anyhow, you can read more about how the last photo was found by going to the Post web site.
