With this year’s trade deadline looming on the horizon, we started a series of trade-related Mind Bogglers. Each week, we’re asking you to name every long-tenured player the Mets acquired in a certain decade, starting last week with the ’60s. For this week’s Mind Boggler, we’d like you to do the same for the decade of the ’70s.

Players that the Mets traded for in the 1970s (min. 1,000 PA for position players, 250 IP for pitchers)

To qualify for this list, players needed at least 1,000 plate appearances as a position player or 250 innings as a pitcher with the Mets. These players came to the Mets in a number of different ways, be it for another player, a player to be named later, or cash. They all, however, came to the Mets as part of some kind of trade.

You’ll have five minutes for this quiz. Good luck, and remember to post your time and score in the comments!
