Description

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 widely considered America's best high school baseball player and was expected to be chosen first overall by the Seattle Mariners in the MLB Draft (which he was). That Spring, Rodriguez became the first high school player to tryout and be offered a spot on the USA National Team -- which was usually reserved for the nation's best collegiate amateurs. As part of USA Baseball's sponsorship agreement with Topps, if Rodriguez agreed to join the National Team, Topps would have the right to issue a Rodriguez trading card -- along with the rest of the U.S. National Team -- meaning, Rodriguez's first (and only) Major League true rookie card would have been included in that year's 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. Rodriguez then signed an exclusive deal with draft pick and Minor League card maker Classic. When Rodriguez made his Major League debut the following year, Donruss, Fleer, Pacific, Pinnacle Brands, and Upper Deck all were able to issue true rookie cards. Topps, which unlike their competitors, did not subscribe to the MLBPA's Group Licensing Agreement and signed players to individual contracts, did not issue their first Alex Rodriguez card until 1998.
