Almost a Brownie???

In 1956, the St. Louis Hawks traded the No. 2 pick in the draft - Bill Russell - to the Boston Celtics.

In the late 1940s, the St. Louis Browns had a chance to sign a Commerce, Okla. high school baseball star. The Browns couldn't afford to put him up in a hotel and Mickey Mantle wound up signing with the New York Yankees.
