    1950's Gil Hodges Single Signed Baseball. Collectors concentrating on the final years of the Brooklyn Dodgers and the first years of the New York Mets will have to battle it out for this one, and battle they should, as Hodges singles don't exactly grow on trees. Hodges' tragic 1972 death as the result of a heart attack while playing golf with Yogi Berra and other Mets coaching staff members robbed the game of a true fan favorite, and collectors of an adequate supply of quality autograph examples such as this. His massive side panel inscription, "To Debbie, Best Wishes, Gil Hodges," is simply beyond reproach, and the ONL (Giles) ball is the most ideal home for the 10/10 ink. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
