'25-Year-Old Baseball Cards': These were the best trades of 2017

Big League Stew

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Baseball’s Winter Meetings are where were we expect lots of trades to go down each year. This year, the Hot Stove has been more like a Tepid Stove, but not to worry, baseball fans, because we have a treat for you.

While we’re here at the Winter Meetings, we’re presenting a special episode of our “25-Year-Old Baseball Cards” video series looking back at the best trades that happened throughout our dozens of episodes this year. Each episode ends with a trade, so we had plenty of choose from. It includes Aaron Boone, Pedro Martinez, Chase Utley, Dan Plesac and others.

If you’re new to “25-Year-Old Baseball Cards,” it’s our trip down memory lane via old baseball cards. It all started with old unopened cards sitting in my garage. We started opening them with baseball players and the rest is history. In every episode, we find great stories and memories. If this is your first experience with our series — and thanks if it is — we have plenty of great full episodes below. Or you can check our “Best Finds of 2017” video from last week.
