A legend on New York diamonds in Flatbush and Queens, Gil Hodges is the subject in most of these (40) 1950s-1960s Type I photographs. Ranging in size from 9-1/8 x 7" to 14x11, these black-and-white photos depict Hodges (often with teammates) as both a Dodger and a Met. Many are original news service examples with reverse stampings and original caption sheets adhered. Evidence of newsroom handling and editorial markings is found throughout. More on our website

Highlights include a near-pristine 1955 New York Times photo of pitching coach Dazzy Vance giving instruction as (8) Dodger players look on. From left to right, the pupils include: Gil Hodges, Jackie Robinson, Cookie Lavagetto, Dixie Walker, Zack Wheat, Roy Campanella, Pee Wee Reese and Duke Snider.

Also included are several original wire photos, with typewritten captions on the photos.
