Gil Hodges 1962 Topps

I'm not a huge fan of the design, but any Gil Hodges card is a good card as far as I'm concerned. This is one of my favorites of his - 1962 Topps # 85.

Gil returned to NY to be a part of the expansion NY Mets. In 1969 Hodges was the manager for a Mets team that shocked baseball by beating the Orioles in the World Series.

I was disappointed to see that Gil Hodges wasn't selected to the Hall of Fame this year.
