1954 Wilson Franks Gil Hodges SGC EX/NM 80

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $705

Graded EX/NM 80 by SGC. One of only two examples graded at this level by SGC, with just two graded higher. Outstanding high-grade example of Gil Hodges from the very popular Wilson Franks set. The Wilson Franks set is one of the most attractive and desirable of all 1950s food issues. This card displays four sharp corners (with just the slightest touch of wear in the lower left), vibrant colors, perfect registry, and centered slightly towards the bottom right. Flawless reverse with bold printing and perfectly centered. Hodges went on to win three Gold Glove awards, played on eight All-Star teams, and appeared in seven World Series. This is an extremely high grade example of one of the most sought-after of all Gil Hodges’ cards. The equivalent SMR value for the assigned grade is $850. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $705
