I would give you the trivia question; however, your puny brains couldn't comprehend it so there.

What was the first trade that involved two Hall of Famers between the Cubs and the Cardinals?

It wasn't Brock (I don't think we got much of anything back)

Was it Sutter?

I was just looking at the Three Finger Brown trade the other day.  I recall the Cubs traded Jack Taylor as part of the deal and then traded 3 three players a couple years later to reacquire Taylor.  But I don't recall any other names.  Eh.  Probably not it.

 

Can we sidetrack yet?

 

I think the Cubs actually won the Sutter trade.  And it wouldn't have been close if Durham had been able to keep his nose clean.  (Not judging.  Just sayin'.)

Hmmm, all I can think of is Hornsby, Wilson, Brock, Sutter. 

 

You got me.
