Russ Hodges autographed baseball. 1950’s-vintage blue fountain pen ink signature rates a “6+/7-” out of “10” and sprawls across the South panel of this cream-colored “Official League Ball". Hodges has also added the words, “Giants Win!!” Hodges is the beloved Giants’ hall of fame announcer who is forever remembered for exclaiming the words “The Giants Win the Pennant” repeatedly when Bobby Thomson hit his famed “Shot Heard Round The World”. Hodges died in 1971--long before the popularity of single-signed ball collecting--and might have been non-existent on his own baseball were it not for this example which represents the only one we have ever seen!
