Yankees-Orioles, November 1954

The Yankees and Orioles completed an 18-player deal that swapped mostly inconsequential players, but did deliver Don Larsen to New York. Larsen would famously go on to pitch the only perfect game in World Series history in 1956. The trade also involved Gus Triandos, who was a three-time All-Star in Baltimore and is referenced in Season Three of The Wire.
