Happy Reds birthday, Alan Knicely!

Knicely

May 19, 1955

Alan Knicely’s cardboard debut for the Reds came in the 1983 Topps Traded set, after showing up in the base set with the Houston Astros. The Astros traded Knicely to Cincinnati for Bill Dawley and Tony Walker. Knicely’s 1984 Topps card shows him wearing the tools of ignorance, but he disappeared from the 1985 set. Topps included him in the year-end Traded issue as a Red, but he was traded to the Phillies with Tom Foley in August for the late Bo Diaz.
