Yankees-Marlins Series Features Stanton’s First Visit, Munson Bobblehead

New York Yankees fans are in for a real treat on June 18, when the Miami Marlins come to town for a rare Interleague series and fans can get their hands on a Thurman Munson bobblehead. Thurman Munson Bobblehead Night packs a serious punch in terms of value, as fans get to witness a probable offensive showdown and also get a rare, limited-edition Yankees collectible in the process.

New York continues to boast one of the more explosive offenses in the entire league, while Miami offers up the game’s top home run hitter in Giancarlo Stanton, who has become one of the biggest stars in all of baseball as a result. While both sides possess some fine starting pitching, it may not be enough to prevent a boatload of runs throughout the series.

Ticket Value

This clash with the Miami Marlins is rare by itself, as the two face off at Yankee Stadium after battling it out at Marlins Ballpark on June 15 and June 16. This particular matchup is a rarity and gives Marlins and Yankees tickets killer value, regardless, as fans can get in for just $99.96 on average ($20 for the cheap seats), according to TiqIQ. That’s a sweet deal considering these teams almost never face each other, not to mention the cool giveaway that’s involved for those who attend. Fans looking for the best deals on tickets would be wise to go through the Yankees on Ticketmaster, as they best some of the offers out on the secondary market. For instance, if someone wanted to sit in section 310, row 3 for Thurman Munson Bobblehead Night, you would only pay $49 through the Yankees, compared to $78 on the secondary market for those same tickets. Another example of this is in section 237, row 20, in which the Yankees have tickets in that area for $22, compared to $25 through other sellers.

In addition, if you attend one of the two games in this series at Yankee Stadium, you can also get 10 percent off select tickets via the Yankees Ticket Exchange, thanks to a special promotion the Yankees are running for dads and grads throughout the upcoming week.

Munson Bobblehead

A long-time All-Star, Munson was a fan favorite and is still the only Yankee to ever win both Rookie of the Year and MVP. Munson spent his entire 11-year MLB career in New York, while helping the Yankees to two World Series titles. Munson also won three Gold Glove Awards and was a seven-time All-Star in a career that saw him bat a very solid .292, along with 113 home runs and 1,558 hits. Easily one of the more beloved Yankees legends, Munson fits right along with New York’s limited-edition bobblehead collectibles and is a solid draw for fans on the 18th.

Matchup Breakdown

The potential for how entertaining this series might be, combined with the Munson bobblehead, really give these tickets ultimate value. Stanton, as mentioned, is rightfully recognized as baseball’s best home run hitter, and Miami has some other useful players that Yankee fans never get to see like Dee Gordon, Marcell Ozuna, and Christian Yelich. The overall supporting cast, along with an improved starting pitching unit, should help keep the Marlins in this series, and perhaps even take it. The first-place Yankees, however, have been able to take on all comers, hence why they have one of the best records in the American League.
