2017 Topps All-Star Rookie Team

To nobody’s surprise, Aaron Judge and Cody Bellinger are among those named to the 2017 Topps All-Star Rookie Team. The record-setting rookies are among 11 players given the honor. For collectors, it confirms who will have the Topps Rookie Cup on their 2018 Topps Baseball cards.

Judge set the MLB record for rookie home runs with 52, breaking Mark McGwire’s previous mark of 49. He’s not just a frontrunner for AL Rookie of the Year but MVP as well.

Over in the National League, Bellinger hit 39 home runs to go with 97 RBI after being called up to the Dodgers in late April.

Some of the other members of the 2017 Topps All-Star Rookie Team include Andrew Benintendi, Trey Mancini and Rafael Devers.

The Red Sox, Yankees and Brewers are the only teams with two players on the 2017 Topps All-Star Rookie Team.

With only one player per position, some key 2017 rookies didn’t make the cut. Rhys Hoskins, Bradley Zimmer and Matt Olson are among those left off.

    Always a fan of the day the ASR team is released. I would have made 3 changes. Kyle Freeland over Jordan Montgomery. Matt Chapman over Rafael Devers. Cody Bellinger instead of Trey Mancini in the OF and Josh Bell at 1B. Although arguments could easily be made for the way Topps did it too. And when it is a close call, Topps always picks the big market guy over the small market guy anyway. Regardless, still one of favorite hobby days

    Being a collector of the Topps All-Star Rookie cup cards, I hope that Topps actually puts a cup on each card next year. Several years in the past, including last year, they have failed to put the cup on every member of the Topps ASR team.

    Josh Hader did not have any saves! How can he be the closer?

    K Middleton was the top rookie with 3.

    Really wish Topps would go back to the Trophy they used in the 1960’s as it seems like more of an accomplishment than IMHO the lame cup.
