Player's Been Traded! What To Do?

Say you collect baseball cards.And lets say -- hypothetically -- that one of the players in your collection has been traded to another team. If you're planning on using that player in your card-based baseball game, you have a few options:

  1. You put him with his new team even though the card shows the old one.
  2. You keep him on with his old team, even though you know he's no longer there.
  3. You wait until next year when Topps will put out a new card of the player.
Thanks to something called good ol' American ingenuity, there's another option available. How does an 11 year-old make his own card showing a traded player with his new team?

It's no problem at all if you have a magic marker handy.

  1. I love cards like this! It reminds me of how much fun we had with them. I wonder: is it just as fun now? I guess, but back then there weren't all the worries--overgrading, high prices, alterations, damage in shipping, scamming sellers, etc. The only worry was scrounging up more dimes.
