Tommy Davis was a Mets investment. After acquiring him from the Dodgers a year earlier, Davis led the Mets in homers, runs batted in and batting average in 1967. On December 15, Tommy was dealt to the White Sox with Jack Fisher, Billy Wynne and minor leaguer Buddy Booker for Tommie Agee and Al Weis.

The deal paid off well for the Mets. Agee and Weis became prime players in the team's World Championship drive in 1969. Agee (who was American League Rookie of the Year with the Sox in 1966) led the '69 Mets with 26 homers and 76 RBIs. In Game 3 of the World Series, Tommie led off the game with a home run and made two outstanding catches against the Orioles. Agee remained with the Mets for three more seasons, during which he became the team's first ever Gold Glove winner in 1970. Weis led all hitters in the '69 Series, batting .455 with a home run. Al played with the Mets until 1971.

As for the players traded, Davis and Fisher left the White Sox after only one year with them. Wynne pitched in Chicago for three seasons and compiled an 8-11 won-lost record. Booker went hitless in five at bats with the Sox in '68 and never played in the major leagues again.
