Bad Hockey Card of the Day: Bobby Baun

On November 3rd, 1970 the Buffalo Sabres claimed veteran defenseman Bobby Baun from the Detroit Red Wings on waivers. The following day the Sabres traded him to St. Louis. Baun refused to report to the Blues, so he was traded again, to Toronto.

Unfortunately for Baun's hockey card, O Pee Chee apparently needed to decide on that day of limbo what to do for his card. So they removed the Red Wings logo, guessed at the team and went with it.
