Time to go and give “The Penguin” Ron Cey a “Dedicated Rookie Card” in the 1972 set, the first of two sets that he appeared on a multi-player rookie card:
Cey pretty much made an immediate impact in the Major Leagues, going on
to a very nice 17-year career that saw him star with the Los Angeles
Dodgers at third base, being named to six consecutive all-star games
between 1974 and 1979.
By the time he hung up the cleats after the 1987 season, he slammed 316
home runs while collecting 1139 runs batted in, with a .261 lifetime
As we all know he’d also be part of an infield that came up together,
and stayed together for quite some time, Ron Cey at third, Bill Russell
at short, Davel Lopes at second and Steve Garvey at first base.
And very solid and dependable quartet if there ever was one!
They’d help bring the Dodgers four National League Pennants and a World Series victory in 1981 over the New York Yankees.
Not bad at all...
