The last NFL contraction was in '51. I don't think MLB has contracted since the Great Depression. The NBA's last contraction was in '54. The NHL folded the Cleveland Barons in '78. That's about it. All other post-1950s contractions have one thing in common: They happened in leagues that went under ie ABA, WHA, USFL.
