I believe Bob was the last of the old Brooklyn Dodgers to still be active in the major leagues, though his tenure in his home town was admittedly brief: one game, one at-bat, and one strikeout. This 1969 Topps card shows him as a member of the Atlanta Braves. He had his best years for Houston, though; below the stats box he is pictured on a couple of pieces as a member of the expansion Colt .45s, and a few more cards found their way onto this page as well.
