Here's a fun little Cardinals tie-in:

Quote:
Over the next three years Robinson’s Reds posted winning records, but failed to claim another pennant, and in December 1965, Cincinnati GM and owner Bill DeWitt traded Robinson, whom he described as “not a young 30,” to the Orioles for a three-player package headlined by pitcher Milt Pappas. The trade figured in the obituaries of both DeWitt and Pappas, and became one of the definitive lopsided deals in baseball history.
