Rollie Fingers 1981 Topps Traded – 1st Milwaukee Brewers Card

Rollie Fingers had a crazy offseason in between the 1980 and 1981 baseball seasons.

Actually, to narrow that down even further, he had one really wild week…

On December 8, 1980, Rollie Fingers was traded from the San Diego Padres to the St. Louis Cardinals.  And then just five days later, on the 12th of Decemeber, he was traded to the Milwaukee Brewers.

This is Fingers’ card from the 1981 Topps Traded set:

FINGERS 3

Wouldn’t it have been cool to see a card of him with an air-brushed Cardinals uniform as well??

 I think so…

  1. Great card from a very underappreciated set! this one started the rookie/traded/update craze.

  2. IF Raines ever gets his much deserved HOF recognition, this set will jump in price.

  3. Cool card.
