Default Topps League Leader - Trivia

My trivia questions have been fairly well received, so I'm offering another. You wanna try Googling the answer? Good luck with that. This answer requires thinking, and maybe some looking thru your sets (which is fun, regardless of whether you come up with the answer or not...
Postwar Baseball cards (pre-1980): There have been 11 regular issue baseball cards whereby that player was also depicted on a League Leader card in the same set... with a different team. Gimme the regular issue card (player, year and team), and (of course) I'd want the team he represented on his League Leader card. Legitimately. No trick question. Go.

Some should be obvious (think guys traded off good seasons), others are ridiculously hard (some very obscure players have appeared on League Leader cards).

I know one is a 1966 Leaders card of Hank Aaron listed as an Atlanta Braves and wearing a Milwaukee Braves cap. Probably others like that as well.

No no no. No trick question. The leader cards in question, players are depicted with different franchises than their regular issue cards from the same set. Legitimately.

Okay a start. Probably the easiest of the 11... but once you get one, the others fall into place.

Default Luis Aparicio 1963

SB leader with the White Sox, regular card with the Orioles

But there was no SB leader card, was there?

It must at least partly involve the vagaries of expansion years, yes?
