Updating for 2020 – Hall of Famers in Topps Traded

7 02 2020

Topps Traded is a quicker post – I’ve got to update for the 3 new inductees.

  1. Ted Simmons – Simmons is in 2 different Topps Traded sets.  He was in the inaugural 1981 Topps Traded set after being part of the 1980/81 offseason trade along with (now fellow) Hall of Famer Rollie Fingers from the Cardinals to the Brewers.  I’d say the Brew Crew won that trade.  He is also in the 1986 Topps after the Brewers traded him to the Braves for (primarily) Rick Cerone.
  2. Larry Walker – Walker was in the 1995 Traded set after his trade to the Rockies when Montreal dismantled what could have been a dynasty.  Then he was in 2004 Topps Traded after he was traded to the Cardinals toward the end of his career.

Derek Jeter? I actually don’t have anything to add here.  Jeter was in some later Topps Update sets – but not until 2006 which is after where I’m currently at (stalled?) in the Lifetime Topps project
