2016 Topps Now: Dansby Swanson #367 (1450 print run)

Nearly one year ago, Dansby was called up by the Braves from AA. There was a lot of fan fare made about him when the Braves orchastrated a trade w/ the Arizona Diamondbacks before the start of the 2016 season. I'm still in awe of this lopsided trade that eventually led to the firing of the Diamondback's General Manager.

When Dansby was sent down to AAA Gwinnett many thought it would be for the rest of the season, but on August 17, 2016 he would go 2-4 in his big league debut. While he does seem rejunvenized since returning from AAA, I'm really looking forward to the 2018 season as the Braves have a lot of great young talent that is just waiting to show the rest of major league baseball what they can do.
