here are another 15 players featured together on a sheet of cards from the very large 1990 target dodgers set. enjoy.
wore a black armband in his honor following his death in 1982.
signs cards through the mail, much to my appreciation.
what's going on in the background of his 1964 topps card.
made a nice catch going back on the ball, and the dodgers lived to play game seven (they lost). the play is also known for the fact that the stoic dimaggio showed some frustration by kicking the dirt after the catch was made.
mike james ramsey
a previous sunday morning target dodgers post that mike jeffrey ramsey also played for the dodgers. while his tenure was a mere 9 games in 1985, this mike ramsey appeared in 48 games for the 1987 dodgers, including opening day when he was the team's starting center fielder. the team had been looking to acquire a center fielder (possibly even trading alejandro pena to get one) to replace ken landreaux when ramsey put on a display during spring training and won the job outright. he went 10 for 28 in his first 7 starts, but hit just .196 over his next 30 games (27 of which were starts), and the dodgers made the deal with the orioles for john shelby. in 2004, this mike ramsey (not the 'other' mike ramsey) was named the most obscure but memorable dodger following nominations made by the readers (like me) of jon weisman's dodger thoughts.
