The fairest trade in sports

In 1962, American baseball player Harry Chiti was traded from the Indians to the New York Mets in exchange for a “player to be named later.”

The Mets were disappointed in his unsatisfactory skills and promptly traded him back as the “player to be named later.” Chiti wasn’t the only player to be traded for himself, the list also includes John McDonald, Clint Courtney, Mark Ross, Dickie Noles, and Archie Corbin.
