Gil Hodges Single Signed Baseball
Inscribed "Best Wishes"
A New York baseball legend, offered here is a rare Gil Hodges single signed baseball. While he was a solid first-baseman for the Dodgers and Mets during his playing career (1943-1963), Hodges is best remembered as manager of the New York Mets from 1968-1971. With Hodges at the helm, the Mets captured their first World Series Title in franchise history in 1969 - just eight seasons after expansion into the Major Leagues.
Hodges passed away in 1974, just before autograph collecting became a commercialized hobby. Thus, his signature is relatively tough, especially presented as a single signed baseball. He certainly left his mark on the game, and New Yorkers will never forget those 1969 Miracle Mets!
