Henry offered up a selection of relics and autos in exchange for the Kimbrel. I chose these four:
Fleer Greats from Cardboard Greats. This Paul Molitor relic is a little chipped, but if you've seen my COMC purchases you know that I don't mind a little corner wear.
This Eric Hosmer relic is right up my alley. It's from the 2017 Topps Heritage set and it's very, very blue. Hoz had a rough first year with the Padres but hopefully he'll bounce back in 2019.
Here's the first of two autographed cards in this trade. The Yankees are assembling a Bronx Rockies with DJ LeMahieu here, as well as Adam Ottavino and Troy Tulowitzki. Let's hope they stop raiding the Rox before Nolan Arenado puts on pinstripes.
Last but not least, here's a Topps Gallery auto of Red Sox lefty Eduardo Rodriguez. I was surprised that Henry would offer up a Red Sox card, as we're both Boston fans. ERod's signature isn't the best, and it is a stickergraph...but I'm happy to add it to my collection.
Thanks for the trade Henry! I hope you enjoy the Kimbrel patch.
Update: Congrats to the newest members of the Baseball Hall of Fame!
