The Yankees Won This Trade

On this day in 1972 the Yankees acquired Sparky Lyle from the Red Sox for Danny Cater and Mario Guerrero.  Lyle played seven seasons with the Yankees, leading the league in saves twice and winning a Cy Young Award in 1977 as the Yankees won the World Series.

Lyle appeared in Kellogg's sets from 1973 - 1975 and then again in 1978 as shown above.

Cater was included in the 1971 set and played until 1975.  Guerrero got into the 1979 set, but he played his last game in 1980 at the age of 31.
