Forty years ago, the 1969 Miracle Mets won the World Series so I thought it is as good of a time as any to crack open the vaults and show you this.
It is a Gil Hodges autograph that my mom, when she was child, got in person. As the story goes, she lived in the same neighborhood in Brooklyn as Gil Hodges and the neighborhood kids would go to his house every now and then where he would be at the front door happily signing autographs. So much as changed since then. This is one piece of memorabilia I would never sell or trade.
While I’m at it, here are some ticket stubs from the 1969 Playoffs and World Series. In total I have 4 ticket stubs.
