This 9-player trade was consummated on 6.14.1956 between two clubs whom early in the decade were powerhouses and by 1956 fell below .500 ball. Fans reaction was one of disappointment as the NY Giants traded All-Star shortstop Alvin Dark and All-Star first baseman Whitey Lockman, along with catcher Ray Katt and pitcher Don Liddle to the St Louis Cardinals for future Hall of Fame second baseman Al Red Schoendienst, veteran pitchers Dick Littlefield and Gordon Jones, catcher Bill Sarni  and outfielder Jackie Brandt.
