Unusual, One-On-One Trades

Barry Halper, a New Jersey collector of sports memorabilia, made one of the greatest trades ever when he swapped six bottles of J&B scotch with Lou Gehrig's wife for Gehrig's uniform.

It was the flannel pin-striped New York Yankee uniform worn by Lou Gehrig 60 years ago, when the first baseman declared himself "the luckiest man on the face of the earth." A couple of months ago, in July, Halper auctioned off the uniform for over $450,000!

The Texas Rangers baseball team acquired this year's all-star relief pitcher, Jeff Zimmerman (whose record was 9-0 at the All-Star break), a year ago by trading two dozen baseballs to the independent Northern League for his contract.
