Fun Cards Submission: 1977 Topps Vida Blue, Cincinnati Reds???
This may be the first ever card showing Vida Blue in a Reds uniform. Another fantastic submission from reader Patrick, he shows what could have been in 1978 had Commissioner Bowie Kuhn not interfered. Here is a January 31, 1978, article from the Montreal Gazette detailing the trade and veto. A couple of years prior, Charlie Finley had attempted to move Blue to the Yankees, and Kuhn blocked that deal (and others involving Joe Rudi and Rollie Fingers) as well.
Thanks for the great submissions, Patrick, and for allowing me to share them with other TWJ readers!
