1993 Topps Traded set


The 1993 Topps Traded set was released exclusively as a factory set in the Autumn of 1993. The 132-card set featured all the latest rookies, veteran players who had changed teams, and for the third and final year, that year's USA Baseball National Team.

The most notable rookie card is of Todd Helton -- who is depicted in his USA Baseball uniform.

Exclusion of Alex Rodriguez

In 1993, Alex Rodriguez was the best high school player in the nation and was expected to be chosen first overall by Seattle in the MLB Draft. That Summer A-Rod became the first high school player to tryout for the USA Baseball National Team, and was offered a spot on the team. As part of USA Baseball's sponsorship agreement with Topps, if A-Rod joined Team USA his first (and only) true rookie card would have been included in 1993 Topps Traded.

Under the advice of his agent, Scott Boras, who wanted to negotiate a more lucrative trading card contract, Rodriguez declined USA Baseball's offer. A-Rod then signed an exclusive deal with draft pick and Minor League card maker Classic. When A-Rod made his Major League debut the following year, Donruss, Fleer, Pacific, Pinnacle, and Upper Deck all were able to issue true rookie cards; however, A-Rod did not sign with Topps until 1998.
