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
