Topps announced its 10th and final Finest Rookie Redemption of the year on Thursday, and it’s Atlanta Braves pitcher Tommy Hanson.

And this one, boys and girls, comes autographed.

Hanson is 9-2 with a 3.12 ERA and 69 strikeouts in 86 innings.

Each master box of Finest includes one redemption card, which can be found as Refractors (numbered to 199) and Gold Refractors (numbered to 50).

It’s worth noting that Hanson appeared as card No. 2 in the set as well — an unusual move.

The previously announced cards are:

No. 1 — Indians OF Matt LaPorta

No. 2 — Braves P Tommy Hanson

No. 3 — A’s P Andrew Bailey

No. 4 — Rangers OF Julio Borbon

No. 5 — Cardinals OF Colby Rasmus

No. 6 — Padres OF Kyle Blanks

No. 7 — Rangers P Neftali Feliz

No. 8 — Orioles OF Nolan Reimold

No. 9 — Tigers P Rick Porcello
