Florida Marlins OF Mike Stanton is Topps’ 5th Finest Rookie Redemption
Topps revealed its fifth 2010 Finest Rookie Redemption card on Tuesday, and it’s Florida Marlins outfielder Mike Stanton.
Last week, Topps announced that No. 4 was Red pitcher Mike Leake. Topps’ previous announcements include Cubs rookie Starlin Castro for rookie No. 3, while info on rookie No. 2 can be found here and rookie No. 1 can be found here.
Stanton was promoted to the Marlins last week, making his MLB debut on Tuesday. He’s hitting .368 (7-for-19) with four runs, four RBI and two stolen bases. He’s homerless in the majors after hitting 21 this season for Double-A Jacksonville.
Through the rest of the season, Topps will announce the remainder of the players in the 10-card set. Each Finest Master Box includes one Rookie Redemption, which also can be found as Blue Refractors (199 copies) and Gold Refractors (limited to 50).
