Default Surprisingly long history of Traded cards

I had a lot of fun writing this article. I'm wondering if the N54 members here have any other sets/cards to nominate for inclusion.

https://jasoncards.wordpress.com/201...-traded-cards/

Thanks so much!
Jason

Good stuff!!!!
Not only Nolan Ryan, as you mentioned, but I have always been crushed that Topps didn't put a 'Willie Mays Traded to my Mets' high number card in the '72 set. What an opportunity lost.

You are so right about Mays! I'm going to add that one to the section as another one that might have been.

Default Great article!

I really enjoyed your article and can see you had fun writing this! There's something about traded cards that have always attracted my attention as well. I think its some simple pleasure that we derive as kids playing games like "spot the difference" and things like that. Here are a few more for your consideration.

-1933 Eclipse Import Glenn Myatt - pictured with the Athletics and then with a lazy transfer to the Indians (lets just throw "Cleveland" on his uniform and call it a day)

-1947-66 Exhibits Herb Score - pictured as an Indian, and then with cap emblem removed, no doubt to commemorate his move to Chicago

-1956 Big League Star Statues Larry Doby - pictured as an Indian on both, but the team has switched from Cleveland to Chicago. At least this one contains some extra text regarding the trade.

Also, with regard to your Orestes Minoso example, I have always considered both cards to depict him with the White Sox, with the "C" cap just being an alternate/different year cap for the team.

Would it be alright with you if I added your cards? I probably won't use Score since I used Minoso from same issue but the others are totally new to me.
