sadly, dick allen's card from the 1990 target dodgers 100th anniversary giveaway set features him as a member of the chicago white sox. that was the team to which the dodgers traded allen (for tommy john), and the team with which allen subsequently went and won the most valuable player award. still, allen leads off this week's trip through a sheet of 15 cards in the set, although the 15th card (of double dipper vito tamulis) gets a separate post later on.
allen had played for one year in saint louis as the cardinals' first baseman following his best years in philadelphia before joining the dodgers for the 1971 season. the dodgers moved him back to third base, and he hit .295 over 155 games with 23 home runs and 90 rbi. the dodgers, of course, had steve garvey and ron cey waiting for a chance to play third base, but it was al campanis' desire to bring frank robinson to los angeles that may have spurred the consummation of the allen for john deal prior to the 1972 season.
willie crawfordlike sizemore, a double dipper.
a bit of a journeyman after being traded by the dodgers in november of 1966.
bookended his career with stops in los angeles. he was a rookie on the 1977 nl champion squad and then returned to the club for the 1983 and '84 seasons. he played for houston and cincinnati in between.
no known relation to cy, ray moore pitched for the dodgers in 1952 and 1953. he amassed a record of 2-3 in 15 games as a dodger, and he went on from there to find greater success in the bullpens of the white sox, senators, and twins. with the chisox, moore faced the dodgers in the 1959 world series, giving up one of chuck essegian's pinch-hit home runs.
