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.

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?

Am guessing this one doesn't count, but 1972 NL Pitching (Wins) leaders shows Carlton on the Cards, but he has a 1972 Topps Traded card with Phils.

I wouldn't count traded cards as regular issue. 72 Steve Carlton, 74 Mike Marshall, and 76 Mickey Rivers are not answers in this trivia question.

In hunting for answers I found a guy where Topps used his same pic on Leaders card and regular card. That can be a side trivia question here.

C'mon. Only 4 left, though two are ridiculously difficult; One not so hard; and one a guy mentioned above, but in a different card set.

I found one that should have been but was a mistake by Topps, Dick Donovan led the AL in ERA in 1961 for the Washington Senators but on the 1962 Topps AL ERA Leaders card he is mistakenly listed as a member of Cleveland, on his regular card he is listed with the Cleveland Indians who he was traded to after the 1961 season was over.

Your hint helped a lot. Jim Bunning also in 1968. Leaders with Phils and regular with Bucs.

BTW -- My answer is correct -- your question specified different TEAM not different FRANCHISE. Sorry but I will play semantics on trivia questions -- having been paid on several occasions to write those and hearing all the objections

Correct. Only 3 more left. So far...
1) 1963 Runnels (Hou / Bos)
2) 1964 Bunning (Phi / Det)
3) 1965 D. Stuart (Phi / Bos)
4) 1966 F. Robinson (Balt / Cin)
5) 1968 Bunning (Pit / Phi)
6) 1971 T. Conigliaro (Cal / Bos)
7) 1977 Bill Campbell (Bos / Min)
8) 1978 Hisle (Mil / Min)


Hint for the last 3: They would all fit in between #'s 6 & 7 on the above list.

I would argue that the Atlanta Braves and Milwaukee Braves were the same team. I understand the thought process, as many trivia questions use silly tricks that make them less trivia and more annoying. I think you understand the spirit of the question though.

1972 Dave Roberts, although I believe the Padre pictured on the League Leader card is a photo of another Padre.

How about a 1972 Frank Robinson as an Oriole on a leader card and as a Dodger in the traded series.

I wasn't counting guys on traded cards - there was also 1972 Carlton, 1974 Mike Marshall & 1976 Mickey Rivers - but I'm happy to give partial credit on this one.
