Fun Cards Submission: 1976 Topps Traded Marlon Byrd

Marlon Byrd traded to Reds

How big of a deal is the Marlon Byrd trade for the Reds? Only time will tell, but considering that Byrd hit 49 homers and drove in 173 runs over the past two years, it’s bound to be an improvement over what the Reds have trotted out into left field recently. Add to that a very respectable .277 average, and the 329 strikeouts don’t seem like that huge of a deal.

Ryan Ludwick, who is still looking for a team for 2015, only played in 150 games over that span, with 11 home runs, 57 RBI and a .243 batting average. Chris Heisey, traded to the Dodgers earlier in the off-season, didn’t fare much better: 206 games, 17 home runs, 45 RBI, .228 batting average.

TWJ contributor Patrick stepped up quickly with a great “fun card” in the style of 1976 Topps Traded. I’m love these customs that Patrick is sending in, and hope you do too!
