First Trades of 2019

This was actually two trades, but I received them both today and they both fit on the same scan, so here we go:
1.  2018 Topps Gallery Andrew Benintendi.  Up first is a nice short print of left-fielder Benintendi.  He had a decent year, but tended to go through some cold streaks that affected his overall numbers. 

2.  2018 Topps Holiday Relic Andrew Benintendi.  This is actually my first Benintendi relic.

3.  2018 Topps Heritage Mitch Moreland.  In the second trade, I finished off the Heritage High Numbers team set.  Moreland had a good first half of the season, and a miserable second half, but his three-run home run in Game 4 of the World Series was HUGE.

4.  2018 Topps Heritage Carson Smith.  Smith will be back in 2019, hopefully he will return to his Mariners form.

5.  2018 Topps Heritage Now & Then Mookie Betts.  Betts hit three home runs in a game twice and hit for the cycle in another game.  He had a terrific year.

6.  2018 Topps Heritage Blake Swihart.  Swihart might be in line to take over the starting catcher position in 2019. 

7.  2018 Topps Heritage Joe Kelly.  I am disappointed that Kelly left for LA after the season.  I always liked him.

8.  2018 Topps Heritage Brian Johnson.  Johnson managed to stay in the Majors for the entire season in 2018, but he will have to improve if he is going to stick with the team long-term.

So that's it for now.  I don't have much yet to receive, so it may be a few more weeks before I return full-time.  Still working on a big appeal.
