T206 Brooklyn Dodgers: Joe Dunn

Here is my second installment of Brooklyn T206 players.  This time I around I feature catcher Joseph Edward Dunn.  He only had a two year Major League career from 1908 to 1909, all with the Brooklyn Superbas.  He was a backup catcher who only had an opportunity to get into 30 games.  He didn't have much pop in his bat and even had less of an arm behind the plate.  Dunn hit a career .169 and gave up 34 steals in 27 games as a catcher.  Overall, he spent 17 years in the minors, bouncing around primarily in the Midwest as a player til 1926.  He also managed a bit on various minor league clubs from 1915 to 1931.  Unfortunately, I don't know anything more about him.
