Presented are four different autographed Bowman and Topps cards spanning the years 1951 to 1967 of Brooklyn Dodgers star Gil Hodges. Each card is encapsulated by PSA/DNA or SGC Authentic. Hodges lived until 1972, so he was only available for just a short time to collectors who had the inclination, desire, and appreciation of the significance of autographed trading cards as the hobby matured through the 1960s and into the 1970s. Each card is signed in blue ballpoint pen. 1) 1951 Bowman #7: SGC Authentic (presenting as Ex-Mt), signature grade of 8. 2) 1951 Topps Red Back #31: PSA/DNA Authentic (presenting as Fr), signature apparent grade of "5." 3) 1966 Topps #386: SGC FAIR 20, signature grade of 7. 4) 1967 Topps #228: SGC Authentic (presenting as Vg-Ex), signature grade of 8. While the overall condition of the cards spans several grades, this remains an exceptionally pleasing collection of classic Gil Hodges cards bearing beautiful signatures. Total: 4 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500++.
