Rockies’ Josh Rutledge is fourth Finest rookie
By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor
Topps revealed the fourth Finest rookie redemption of the year on Friday, and it’s a member of the Colorado Rockies.
It’s shortstop Josh Rutledge.
Collectors who found redemption No. 4 out of the five in 2012 Finest, which arrived in hobby shops last month, will receive a signed card of the former University of Alabama star, who is hitting .327 through his first 47 big-league games.
The third redemption was of Angels star Mike Trout, while the second was Cubs rookie Brett Jackson and the first card announced was Pirates rookie Starling Marte.
The fifth and final rookie will be revealed later in the month.
