Marv Throneberry signed Kansas City Athletics 8x10 Photo (blue sig) (deceased)
Marv Throneberry was an American Major League Baseball player, best remembered as the starting first baseman for the 1962 New York Mets, a team which set the modern record for most losses in a season with 120. Throneberry made it back to the majors for good in 1958, and although he possessed good power-his swing drew comparisons to Mickey Mantle- he showed a tendency to strike out. As a result, he spent two seasons on the Yankees' bench before being included in a six-player trade for Kansas City Athletics power-hitting outfielder Roger Maris before the 1960 season.
