here's wally hood's 1990 target dodger card
i showed a few sundays back, hood's card looks like it might have been put together by georges seurat. the last time i was in chicago i took the time to check out seurat's work that we all first saw in 'ferris bueller's day off', but i digress.
hood was a brooklyn robin double dipper.

hood began his big league career with the robins in 1920, but was plucked off of waivers by the pirates after hitting .143 in 7 games. he was 0 for 1 with a walk in his two plate appearances for the pirates, and found his way back to brooklyn for the 1921 season. hood hit .262 in 56 games for the 1921 robins, but then made just two pinch-running appearances for the club in 1922 and his major league career was over. hood stayed in the game, however, as he played (and later umpired) for a few seasons in the pacific coast league.
