Gil Hodges was considered one of the finest players of the 1950's who went on to managerial success. The fact a plaque in Cooperstown still doesn’t exist baffles many observers from that golden age of baseball. He helped lead the 1955 Dodgers to their World Championship. The 8-time All-Star also managed the 1969 Miracle Mets. Passing in 1972 means finding a single signed baseball has been a challenge for many collectors, and offered here is high grade PSA/DNA 6.5 example which will be a major bargain when his name is finally called to enter the Hall of Fame. This rare vintage Tober Semi-Pro League baseball has been hand signed and inscribed "To John Best Wishes" by Gil Hodges. The autograph is guaranteed authentic, and includes a PSA/DNA Letter of Grading & Authenticity, as well as a Letter of Authenticity from James Spence Authentication.
Note: This item does not include an individually numbered TRISTAR Authentication hologram, only the PSA/DNA Letter of Grading & Authenticity and JSA Letter of Authenticity.
