Future Hall of Famers as you'd expect are not normally traded at the height of their careers.  But it does happen for a variety of reasons.  Being a future HOF'er, being traded and then winning a World Series with the new team has to be a very special feeling for both the player and the team.  It's actually surprising to consider how many HOF players have been traded during their careers.  Some trades work out better than others.
