The solidly built Hodges stood 6-feet-1½-inches tall and weighed 200 pounds. He batted and threw right-handed, and was considered big for a baseball player of that era. However, Hodges was a gentle giant, often playing the role of peacemaker during on-field brawls. His hands were so large that teammate Pee Wee Reese once remarked that he could have played first base barehanded but wore a mitt because it was fashionable.
if you’re in the market for vintage leather, then look no further folks. This aged baseball glove leather has the look and feel of something straight out of the 1950’s. The alternating light and dark patches of leather provide the perfect backdrop for Gil’s signature and tan baseball stitching. Measuring 4" by 4", there are multiple card pockets on the inside along with a full length cash slot. The pictures really don’t do this wallet justice, and we know you’ll love the look and feel of this wallet once you’ve got it in hand. Enjoy!
