well, i dug out a few more sheets from the 1990 target 100th anniversary giveaway set to scan and show off. as for the subtitle of the post - you can probably guess that there is a rocky (or two) coming up. with that, here are 14 more members of the dodger franchise fraternity from one of those sheets - the 15th guy being a double dipper who will get a post all to himself later today.
before, and there's not much else to say since he only appeared in four games as a dodger in 1978. i'll just note that he was one of three dodgers to wear number 3 in 1978 - glenn burke and rudy law being the others.
dave j. hickman
the other jim hickman who played for the dodgers. you can tell that this one was a member of the 1916 robins thanks to the uniform he is wearing, and in fact, hickman was a robin from 1916 through 1919. he hit .218 during that time while playing a fair amount of outfield, but he did not appear in the 1916 world series against the red sox.
on a card commemorating the feat in the 1961 topps set.
a 1963 topps rookie parade card. he pitched in 14 games for the dodgers that year, putting up an era of 2.53 while splitting his two decisions. rowe did not appear for the dodgers in the 1963 world series, and his contract was purchased by the orioles in 1964 bringing his dodger career to an end.
i will be back next week with another installment of these things, so don't fret.
