Juan Segura is Topps’ final Finest rookie

By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor

Topps revealed its fifth and final Finest rookie of the year on Friday, and it’s Milwaukee Brewers shortstop Jean Segura.

Collectors who found redemption No. 5 out of the five in 2012 Finest, which arrived in hobby shops last month, will receive a signed card of the infielder, who is hitting .266 in 33 games this season.

The fourth redemption was of Rockies rookie Josh Rutledge, while the third was of Angels star Mike Trout, the second was Cubs rookie Brett Jackson and the first card announced was Pirates rookie Starling Marte.

Those who pulled or bought any of these five Finest redemptions in the hopes one would be Manny Machado are simultaneously slapping their palms against their foreheads.
