Bubblegum Card of the Week: Gil Hodges

The oldest card in my collection? This here '58 Topps is fiddy!

I got it from childhood friend who presumably nicked it from his dad's stash of cards collected during his youth. Maybe it was to atone for his incessant badgering of me to the point of tears (mine) to simply give him my '78 Ron Guidry. Which I didn't.

And Gil Hodges? He of the legendary Boys of Summer and skipper of the '69 Miracle Mets? Not to shabby.

Not 'til just now as I'm posting this did I make an obvious visual connection with the Kenji Johjima card that I like so much.
