it must be sunday because here's another 15 cards from a sheet in the 1990 target dodgers 100th anniverary giveaway set. let's get right to it.
one of my favorite non-dodger baseball cards was himself a dodger in 1957 and 1958. acquired in a trade with the phillies, valo played in 81 games for the brooklyn dodgers in their final season. in fact, he was the second to last dodger batter at ebbetts field, grounding out before gil hodges struck out to end the 8th inning on september 24, 1957. the following year, valo played in 65 games for the los angeles dodgers in their first season. it was the second time that valo had played for a team that relocated while he was on the roster (he had previously played for the philadelphia/kansas city a's), and wouldn't be the last (he would later play for the washington senators/minnesota twins).
there are only two sheets left in the 1990 target set to show, so we are definitely close to the end. i'll have one of those sheets next week. stay tuned….
