the only example I can think of was in the NBA when the league vetoed the trade that would have sent CP to the Lakers. 

Bowie Kuhn disallowed a move by the As to sell off players.  He invoked the "Best Interest of Baseball" clause.  This is a somewhat different, yet somewhat similar situation.   Selig could nix the deal, if he wanted to, by invoking that clause.   But he won't.
