Repack Haiku #48 (Russ Nixon)

Coached "Big Red Machine"
Once traded twice to same team
In single season

1984 Topps #351 Russ Nixon (Mgr)

From his Wikipedia page:

"In addition, Nixon was actually traded twice to the Red Sox in 1960. Cleveland initially dealt him to Boston on March 16 for catcher Sammy White and first baseman Jim Marshall. White chose to retire and the trade was cancelled but not before Nixon played five exhibition games for the Red Sox. Nixon returned to the Indians and started the regular season with them, appearing in 25 games, 21 as the starting catcher; then, almost three months after the original swap, on June 13, he was traded to the Red Sox a second time, with outfielder Carroll Hardy for pitcher Ted Bowsfield and outfielder Marty Keough."
