Interesting concept but where is the benefit? Selling your old item and buying a new one is more slot efficient. The item isn’t worth a slot at that cost…
The t3 offers some hp for 2500 and upon first use the cost is 3500 gold… For some hp and a temporary boost.

The item: metamorphing satchel would be better. It can morph into an item of the same tier with an on and off switch and a cooldown afterwards…

The point is, turning the tide. This may not be useful for lower tier, but in pros play, this is life and death. Moreover, this will make the battle in river more unexpected.

For example, Ardan has a 300 oakheart and he needs to check the bush nearby the blue orb, he can use 100 gold to get the flare and then after one min, he will automatically trade and get oakheart back. Remember by the time the items swapped, he will regen 150HP from the oakheart.

Let’s take another scenerio, battle at Blackclaw. Ardan has used Echo already, so he just need to trade his Echo with another item, like Shiversteel. Note that Shiversteel is a 1900 gold item so he just spend 500 gold to trade that. Let’s take it to another high ground, Journey Boots. Yeah, as top laner, he could buy it and trade for War Tread (again, 1900 gold). Then he can use the boots TWICE.

There gonna be more strategies and things for this, and almost everybody can buy the mirror. Laner can buy the 600 gold version for roaming purpose and Captain can buy the more expensive one for health, gold boost and stuffs.

P/s: I innovate this idea from DOTA, where you have a mobile storage to store item to swap. However, with the Mirror idea, I add the 1min timer so that it is more tricky to use but more effective if calculated (because timer cannot die like some squishy couriers)
