1976 Topps Traded: The Missing Cards - #405T Rollie Fingers

Like Vida Blue and Joe Rudi, the league voided Charlie Finley's sale of Rollie Fingers to the Boston Red Sox at the June 15th trade deadline in 1976. Fingers was granted free agency at the conclusion of the 1976 season. The All-Star and leading fireman signed with San Diego.

This card caused me to freak out a little bit. Rollie as a Red Sox... thank goodness the league stepped in and allowed Mr. Fingers to go from one favorite team to another.
