He was 78, but I have not seen any word on what exactly took him.

Such an underrated hitter.

One of my favorite cards of his (was pleased when this was maybe the nicest card of my '71 set):

I really don't know too much about Dick Allen. It's sad that he died. So what made him special? What would be the sales pitch to put him in the HOF?
