Speedy outfielder-first baseman who spent parts of two seasons in New York, leading the Mets in steals in 1964 despite coming to the plate less than a hundred times. Even though he is little remembered by Met fans now, he was their Opening Day first baseman and leadoff hitter in '64. Dick appears here on his card from the 1976 TCMA 1963 Mets set.
