Russ Hodges Baseball HOF Broadcaster Signed Business Sized Card NY Giants

Russ Hodges (D. 1971) was an American broadcaster who did play-by-play for several baseball teams, most notably the New York and San Francisco Giants. He worked for the Chicago Cubs, Washington Senators, and Cincinnati Reds before landing in New York City with the New York Yankees and New York Giants, who during much of the 1940s only broadcast home games and shared the same radio team — lead announcer Mel Allen and No. 2 man Hodges. In 1949, Hodges became a No. 1 announcer when the Giants and the Yankees separated their radio networks to each broadcast a full, 154-game schedule. He would be the voice of the Giants for the next 22 seasons on both coasts. On October 3, 1951, Hodges was at the microphone for Bobby Thomson's famous Shot Heard 'Round the World. It was Hodges who cried, "The Giants win the pennant! The Giants win the pennant!" He is in the Broadcaster’s Wing of the Baseball HOF.

Offered is a vintage 1940’s business sized card that measures 3.5” x 2” that has been signed in black steel tipped pen.
