Baseball deal

In 1966, in one of the best trades in major league history, the Baltimore Orioles traded for Frank Robinson. They won the World Series that year, and played in the series during four of the six years Robinson was with the team. Advantage: Baltimore. One team gave up on Babe Ruth, the other one traded for Frank Robinson. No contest.
