Nomar garciaparra, guy was a god in Boston to kids my age.


tobinoxdz

I made my mom buy me his jersey the minute he became a Cub


[deleted]

I think 13 year old me went on strike and refused to watch the Red Sox for about a week, really stuck it to the man.


Xcasinonightzone

Seeing him smash a triple at Fenway is one of my greatest baseball memories


Shade30z

I said Mookie, but take it back. Yes, this was much worse….


sbreene

Ken Griffey Jr. watched him hit his first MLB home run in the Kingdome and collected his cards from day one. I still do I just don’t have a single Reds card of him.


egg_sandwich13

Legendary White Sox hitter


sbreene

Ha! I totally blocked that out.


AR2185

Wasn’t traded, but Madison Bumgarner does not look right in a D-Backs uniform


JerryRhinefeld

My dude. I have a 2010 playoff jersey of Bumgarner that I wear with pride because I was so sure he was going to be good. He was so consistent for the first half of his career it was amazing. But after the dirt bike accident, he seemed to lose a small step every year after. I always hated Bobby Evans for not paying the man after he helped them win 3 World Series championships. Bumgarner is the man.


tjay2233

Albert Pujols in any other uniform. He wasn't traded, but he was/is a Cardinal.


GimmeDatDaddyButter

Can't imagine a worse one than this.


mlmz99

And to add insult to injury, when he had to change his number to 55 instead of 5 for Corey Seager


kramdiw

Lifelong Dodgers fan, and fan of Seager from day one. Seager should've immediately offered to give up #5 out of respect. I don't know if he did or not, but if he didn't he sure as shit should have...especially if Pujols wasn't trying to demand it.


Spinmove55

And the beauty of Albert Pujols is that he asked Orel Hershiser for permission before he wore #55. Here’s hoping that, with the coming of the universal DH, Albert gets to return to St. Louis.


kramdiw

I love having him in Los Angeles, but it wouldn't be terrible if he returned to the Cards for a final season.


MKingX

Aren’t they not allowed to change within season? I don’t know if Seager could just give him up the number because MLB wants to sell Corey Seager jerseys and then when it suddenly changes his number that would leave those that just bought their “5” Corey Seager feeling less good about it and a bunch of 5 Seager jerseys in stores not to sell because ppl want his new number. I only say this because in the NBA it isn’t allowed I think unless they buy all of the remaining jerseys of that name


kramdiw

That's something I hadn't thought of...would be a good reason to not change it. I still hope he offered though!


Impressive_Unit420

At least in the NFL, players need to buy out at least some of the inventory of their jerseys, so it might be pricey especially when it's a player like Seager. Otherwise I would agree


kyldabara

This is the answer


floaf_beans

Same. I'm still butt-hurt. They should have paid the man.


egg_sandwich13

I’d take his lousy contract today if it means we would have won even just 1 more World Series in 2012-2015.


tjay2233

EXACTLY!


Steindigity

I don’t disagree with you that the org should have paid Albert. But I always thought (granted, I was young and naïve In the ways of the world back then) that Albert really did love stl and wasn’t in the game *just* for the money.


floaf_beans

If IRC, he played on a pretty low discount for his caliber of player and then they low-balled him again when the time came around. I always hope he'll come back and retire a cardinal, but who knows.


Steindigity

Fingers crossed they sign him to DH this year and he can retire with the birds on the bat


floaf_beans

Can't upvote that enough!


[deleted]

I believe that you can still be in it for the love of the game and not money, but also recognize your own worth. I’m not very knowledgeable about contracts and what people get paid, so I could be very wrong, but assuming the cards were really undervaluing and underpaying Albert, then I can understand there only being so long you deal with that, even if you loved the game and the city. If he had left a good offer for a slightly better paying offer, that would be different, but if he was going from being definitely underpaid for a long time to finally making what he’s worth, that doesn’t show a lack of love of the game, it just shows that he wanted to reap the rewards of his hard work, the rewards he absolutely deserved to enjoy


MandoFett

Dale Murphy as a Philly


mcglasson9

Good thing that this did not actually happen. This would be like Tom Glavine becoming a Met. Ridiculous, I say!


MandoFett

Yea I couldn’t that. :)


Ok_Procedure_3577

Ooooh, that's the best (worst) one!


HaklePrime

Came here to say this


MandoFett

Just the worst!


RobbyC2110

Tom Glavine to the Mets was just hurtful !!🤮


jfweasel

This exactly! Not just gone from the braves but to the team I absolutely hated,at that time, as a braves fan. Will not purchase any glavine cards in a Mets uni. Also Maddux to the cubs was another one.


dblshot99

Maddux started with the Cubs


UKnoTRo

Lol it’s like people forget he played 6+ seasons for the cubs before Atlanta. Definitely one of the few players who are more remembered for their second team


jfweasel

No didn’t forget just got use to seeing him as a brave. The real reason I didn’t like seeing him as a cub because I am also a Cardinals fan as well.


CatsMakeMeHappier

Nick Madrigal when they photoshopped him in a cubs jersey for holiday…


Cmoney323

Not on a baseball card but seeing trea turner and max scherzer in a dodgers uniform mad me want to cry


Professional-Binch

This


aa481

Same. Bryce hurt but seeing Max (and Trea) was WEIRD.


RavenclawNatsfan

I was fine with Bryce leaving, but max and trea hit differently


url8719

Cant wait to see scherzer in his mets uni.


Tcismenotu

Curtis Granderson & Justin Verlander


lionstigerswmu

I came here to say Verlander! He is a Tiger no matter what uniform he puts on at this point.


r6_worm

Beaz is going to pain me in a tigers uni and my Mets only had him for 3 months.


tobinoxdz

I can walk to Comerica from my apartment. I’ll tell him you say hi.


url8719

Better without him.


BulkOfTheS3ries

Easy. Griffey.


NJthecollector

George Springer our post season bomb smasher . We still have the little man but man springer still pains me more than Correa leaving me would.


marshall18

Came here to say this, however if he had to go somewhere I’m glad it was Toronto. Will play with Yuli’s brother and Vlad Jr.


CptSmurf4

Any Albert card in a dodgers or angels uniform and i throw up. Does that count


flexxx1984

Roy halladay


bkovach06

For me it’s Francisco lindor and Corey Kluber


Xcasinonightzone

Mookie is dead to me in a dodger uniform


popularopinionbeer

The worst part will be when they sign a lesser player to a $300M contract. FML


UKnoTRo

They won’t. I didn’t like seeing Mookie go, but he was leaving regardless. He made that known when he turned down a $300million extension from them… I’d rather spend the money to keep Devers and bogey. Both will have a longer prime than Mookie. I’d be willing to be 4-5 years into that dodger contract it’ll start looking real iffy. His injuries will likely shorten his prime sooner rather than later.


nolmurph97

I’m still upset about this, I also haven’t accepted Verdugo yet because he just reminds me of the pain


Adskie01

Nolan Arenado. Still sad to not see him in a Rockies uniform. However, the Rockies suck, so I bought a Cardinals Arenado shirt lol.


egg_sandwich13

Lifelong Cardinals fan now in Colorado, and I picked up an Arenado Rockies shirsey recently 😂. Everyone loves the guy.


Adskie01

Ha, that’s awesome. Welcome to Colorado!


egg_sandwich13

Thank you! Been here since September. Great place.


UKnoTRo

So you never truly loved the Rockies.


HalfpastWaylon

Welcome to Cardinal Nation. As someone who has followed Nolan since 2013 I was elated to have him join my beloved Redbirds. I've always been a fan of power hitting 3rd basemen so Nolan was the guy to follow. I felt the same way when Rolen came here. Now let's get him the ring he deserves.


Adskie01

Appreciate that! I really hope he gets a ring with you all. Was always sad to see how the Rockies did each year knowing he was wasting his talents here.


TopHatNinja135

This


Smokie_Mcblunt

Nick madrigal fuck the cubs…… sorry op lol


LetsplayPOGS

Lol I was going to say the same


DukeParker5

Ditto lol


mythofdob

This was mine as well. Topps Holiday was weird. Then Stadium Club chrome had an auto with the White Sox and a base card with the Cubs.


Electrical_Party7975

GRIFFEY in reds!!! Ugh


oak1andish

Losing Hudson, Mulder, and Zito, the Big 3, from the A’s


tobinoxdz

How do you not win a WS when you’re almost guaranteed 7 innings of shutout baseball 3/5 games


jfweasel

As a braves fan I really liked seeing Hudson in an atl Jersey.


oak1andish

He was my fave of the 3, so clutch


Calderstone

Josh Donaldson once he left the Jays :(


r6_worm

I don’t like that and I’m not even a jays fan


mace0gha1n

Oh, man, Machado for me.


Kboggs1987

Same as you


tobinoxdz

Rough one for us


Shadow_Strike99

Giancarlo Stanton


CaciqueSendIt

Robinson Cano for sure


Dieh

Elvis Andrus. Seeing him in an A’s uniform is disgusting.


UKnoTRo

You’d want the As to still have him?


Migmik

Michael Young


homalamadingdong

Same. I picked up his auto on a Phillies helmet and it just looks weird.


PaganFarmhouse

Former Rangers fan. I'm the span of about two years, my three favorite players, Ruben Sierra, Rafael Palmiero and Julio Franco were traded and replaced by my two least favorite players in the league will clark and jose canseco. It was more seeing those guys in Texas uniforms that hurt


WorldOutlier404

Does Freddie Freeman count? I’m not sure we are going to keep him.


title54

Freddie in a Dodgers uniform was going to be mine...


PitbullsAreJustDogz

Andrew McCutchen and Gerrit Cole


GumbyTSmiles

Andrew Mccutchen


UKnoTRo

That one hurts, but it was a wise move for the team.


Big-Selection-3142

Every high-quality ballplayer from the A’s Edit: after club control


tobinoxdz

Moneyball 😤


Jkirkle51

Cubs fan as well. Pulled both Bryant and Rizzo today and it was brutal. I also have a hatred for the Yankees which makes the Rizzo even worse


tobinoxdz

I live in Detroit right by Comerica and am somewhat of a Tigers fan by family. I’ll send Javy your love.


Jkirkle51

Dang, that must be a perfect scenario for you. If he can’t be on the Cubbies, at least he’s right by you! I’m glad he’s not on a team that I dislike, so I’ll be able to root for him this year


ChoppingOn

Tom glavine from the Braves to the Mets.


C_Falls10

Brian McCann


drt1979

Kenny Lofton in a Braves uni


reSEARCHsfr

Bryant/Baez/Schwarber. Rizzo was sad that he was gone, but the Yankees are my AL team so that softened the blow. Seeing that team dismantled was devastating.


Damon-32

Hated losing beltre to Texas. Watching seager go brought that all back


Shade30z

Mookie Betts


DubyaTcards

Rizzo


tobinoxdz

Hurts bad man. At least there’s talk about them offering him after the lockout


JustinTime4242

Verlander and Scherzer


dongenaroshat

Kevin Youkilis.


amgarrison85

The Boom Stick from the Twins to the Rays. Got a great haul for him though.


Nubcakes69

Manny going to Boston made me cry. David Justice being traded to New York made me rage…still not over it


i_m_that_guy

Scherzer and Turner


getmoneyboi15

pretty sure he wasnt traded but Billy Hamilton


PNWcog

The DeCubbing basically the last straw for me and pro sports. Jordan in a Washington jersey was odd, but at least he gave us a decade of wins.


tobinoxdz

As a native Nebraskan I already hated the Ricketts family because of Pete. Then Tom went and did this shit.


Ok_Dimension_4707

Andrew McCutchen in a Phillies uniform. What kind of bizarro parallel universe nonsense is that?


Jimunit

Joey Gallo. Seemed to genuinely love being a Ranger. After he left they became the Texas Strangers


tobinoxdz

Booo 🍅


dnrexy

Mussina to the yanks was a real kick in the Dick!


Bottlediggerman

Manny machado


Soza-Ozos

I see your Cubs Lester, for my RedSox Lester. Completely ownerships fault for lowballing him on the contract. Loved watching him pitch, one of the Sox best post season pitchers ever. That one still bothers me.


TiPereBBQ

Vladdy Sr in 2004


Tboner989

ian kinsler, michael young, elvis andrus


kramdiw

Kíke Hernandez and Joc Pederson most recently. Ask me again after Seager gets a Rangers card. ____ Alternatively, I loved seeing Machado in a Padres uniform


justakickback2020

Andrew benintendi and it’s not close


Additional-Big8644

Mookie


SueWahoo

Kike Hernandez and to be in a Red Sox uniform :( sigh. He's one of my favorite players. That said, I love have Pujols and Betts on my Dodgers.


Cfcfan9999

Kolten Wong.


AardeWandelaar

Lindor in a Mets uniform..


hsmith4788

Cutch. Still want him back in the burgh


sporting8911

Not my favorite team but seeing Arenado not in Rockies purple was weird as heck


philmichaels

Paul Goldschmidt


jz2016cubs

Same for me, rough to see these cubs in different uniforms.


RocketRider2021

Ken Griffey Jr


G00dthymes

The wound is still fresh. Blue Jay fan…Marcus Semien. Oh Marcus…how could you?


W_Uyeda

Griffey to Reds, nothing else compares


SDpadres45

Jake Peavy even though his career dipped after he left the Padres


kidsasicko

Paul Goldschmidt for me

Haven't seen it yet but it's coming Corey Seager in a Texas ranger uniform


lico114

Frank Thomas


ba292929

Rizzo for sure! Still breaks my heart!


dblshot99

I haven't seen it yet, but the pain is coming...Noah Syndergaard. Not a trade, but still.


PiratesFan1429

Cutch :(


Constant_Milk_3579

Chase Utley as a dodger. Or Chooch as a Dodger or Mariners


Adventurous_Big_6445

Anthony Rizzo as a Yankee. Ugh


sub1030

Andrew McCutchen after he did so much for the Pirates...and they screwed him over. Any other uni really.


dr_van_nostren

Ken Griffey Junior will always be a Mariner. So will Ichiro.


tobinoxdz

You mean the famous Red and Marlin?


dr_van_nostren

Don’t forget Yankee lol


RobTheGood

Roy Halladay. Any Blue Jay leaving Toronto for the Yankees (Burnett, wells) hurts, but doc was the best. Still makes me sad seeing him in a Phillies uni.


tobinoxdz

He was the first athlete/celebrity death that affected me and I have no idea why. I’m nowhere near a fan of the Phillies or Blue Jays.


RobTheGood

I got to see him pitch live 25 or 30 times. Such a privilege


clonewarsguy99

Same as a Cubs fan.


tobinoxdz

Support group meets on Thursday’s


BuckingStuff

As a Braves fan: Dale Murphy Andruw Jones Jason Heyward Andrelton Simmons


craptasticalers

Cubs fan here too and rizzo hit me today. First pack I opened. I keep telling myself it’s a bad dream.


YaGottaBeaDude

Not baseball, but hockey. Fuck John Tavares. Fucker broke my heart worse than my ex wife.


collectaBK7

Kole Calhoun


[deleted]

Nick Madrigal who would’ve thought we needed a 2b for the future instead of an extra closer


desertrat1973

Eric Davis


UKnoTRo

It was Nomar for me. I knew it was for the best and it helped the Sox win a championship that season, but it still hurt. He was unbelievable from 97-03 before the injuries took their toll. Just a shame they couldn’t win one with him on the field.


J3didr

Longoria I still miss him


Naterthot_

Adam Duvall and Todd Frazier really hurt, 2 fan favorites for the Reds, at least we got something back for Duvall in Lucas Sims though, going through the same pain with Wade Miley and inevitably Castellanos, even though neither were traded.


VanillaThunder1017

Definitely Willy Adames.


WholeWhiteBread

Lol. Where to start.


chiliduck

Smoltz on the Red Sox. McCann on the Yankees. Maddux HOF hat decision.


taylordobbs

George Springer


ChocaEgg

Darryl Strawberry. Don't remember if he was traded or left in FA to join the Dodgers (from my Mets)


jasonmiles2014

Cecil Fielder to the Yankees


pdryg

Not necessarily trades but seeing Bautista, Encarnacion and Donaldson not in Jays jerseys hurt me to my core. JB19 was the worst one for me


Scary-Eagle-1949

Andrew McCutchen still looks gross in any uniforms other than a Pirates


DeathsProllyOverated

Mad Max


det313tigersfan

Curtis Granderson from the Tigers to the Mets

DemiLovatozSpoon

Nelson Cruz in anything other than a Rangers jersey will always hurt my soul 😭


Broncojoe58

Francisco Lindor


tylerjs8

Evan Longoria


twills011

Francisco Lindor, Cliff Lee, CC Sabathia, Victor Martinez. Thats not getting into the free agents.


TrevorJohanson

Kolten Wong. He was just starting to get good with The Cards (#bleedred) and then he went and signed with the Brewers. Never left the division but when he came back, there were tears at home plate. I still remember one random walk-off he had against the cubs and he ended up chucking his helmet across the field
