Color image in Brooklyn Dodgers uniform
Photograph inscribed and signed: "Good Luck Larry/Gil Hodges". Color, 8¼x10¾.  Gil Hodges (1924-1972) was the star first baseman of the Brooklyn (and Los Angeles) Dodgers and manager of the world champion "miracle" New York Mets of 1969. After one at bat for the Dodgers in 1943, Hodges joined the Marines, returning to the team in 1947 for a stellar career through 1961. A six-time All-Star and a consistent RBI machine, Hodges moved from catcher to first base when Roy Campanella arrived, and soon earned Gold Gloves at his new position. An original member of the New York Mets (1962-1963, hitting that expansion team's first home run), he managed the Washington Senators (1963-1967) and the Mets (1968-1972), leading the Mets to their first World Championship in 1969. (Hodges was voted Manager of the Year, and deservedly so, platooning at five positions and taking a team that had never finished higher than ninth place to a thrilling World Series victory over a powerful Baltimore Orioles team.). He died of a heart attack in 1972 at the age of 47 (two days before his 48th birthday). Corners worn and lightly chipped. Surface creases. PSA/DNA authentication sticker (K48666) affixed to lower left corner. Otherwise, fine condition.
