the secondary title of this post should make sense about half way through. here are 15 cards from a sheet that was part of the 1990 target dodger 100th anniversary set given out at dodger stadium 25 years ago.
i thought about leaving it at that, but brock deserves better. he was the heir apparent at first base when steve garvey left town, and his gaudy numbers from albuquerque in 1982 (44 homers, 138 rbi, and a .310 average) gave dodger fans hope. brock hit 20 homers in his rookie season, but drove in only 66 and hit just .224. he finished 7th in the rookie of the year voting, breaking the 4-year hold the franchise had on the award. the dodgers did make it to the nlcs in his rookie year, and again in 1985 with brock at first, but he was eventually traded to the brewers after the 1986 season.
that's all for this week - hopefully next week's sheet will have a few more recognizable names.
