Whitey Herzog Signed TYPE I photo New York Mets with Gil Hodges Baseball HOF

Whitey Herzog is a former Major League Baseball manager. Born in New Athens, Illinois, he made his debut as a player in 1956 with the Washington Senators. After his playing career ended in 1963, Herzog went on to perform a variety of roles in Major League Baseball, including scout, manager, general manager and farm system director. Most noted for his success as a manager, he led the Kansas City Royals to three consecutive playoff appearances from 1976 to 1978. Hired by Gussie Busch in 1980 to helm the St. Louis Cardinals, the Cardinals won the 1982 World Series over the Milwaukee Brewers and made two other World Series appearances in 1985 and 1987 under Herzog's direction. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame on July 25, 2010, and was inducted into the St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame Museum on August 16, 2014.

Offered is an 8x10 TYPE I photo taken of Whitey and Gil Hodges in 1968 (although someone wrote 1967) from the Sporting News Archives.  Whitey was director of player personnel at that point for the Mets. An enterprising collector took this photo and had Herzog sign it in blue sharpie.  Whitey also wrote “HOF 2010”

We’ve never seen another Herzog photo signed in Mets uniform.
