not too long ago, i showed off some new to me steve garvey cards. one of those came from a deck of playing cards - the dodgers' version of the 2005 baseball hero deck. i later went out and bought the whole deck of cards, and figured they were worth showing off.
i noted in the title that it was a 52 card pick up, but actually, there are 55 cards in the set. three 'jokers' are included - long time managers walter alston and tommy lasorda, along with even longer-time broadcaster, vin scully.
most of these cards represent the latter years of the brooklyn franchise, with the outliers being zack wheat, dazzy vance, and jake daubert. it's nice to see them getting some attention though.
this is daubert's first appearance on the blog, so i'll go ahead and note that he was the first franchise player to win the mvp award (1913), and the second to win a batting title (also 1913) after dan brouthers was the first in 1893. daubert followed up that season by winning the batting title again in 1914.
