Christmas in May

I added a couple of decidedly festive Griffeys to my collection recently:

Pacific put out these shiny ornament cards for a few years back around 2000.  There's still one other Griffey I have to snag, hopefully before Christmas!

Previous Trivia Question:

Who owns the bizarre claim to fame of being the only player ever traded for himself?

A:  In 1962, Harry Chiti was traded by the Cleveland Indians to the New York Mets for a player to be named later.  Two months later after playing just 15 games for the Mets, Chiti was traded back to the Indians as the player to be named later!

Today's Trivia Question:

What unusual feat did brothers Mike and Bob Garbark accomplish in 1944?
