Eleven baseball players have been honored — and next year their Topps baseball cards will be enhanced with a trophy.

Topps announced its 56th-annual All-Star Rookie Team on Friday, and it includes only one of the this year’s Rookie of the Year award-winners, Jose Abreu. NL Rookie of the Year Jacob deGrom did not get the right-handed hobby honor as that went to New York Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka.

The 2014 Topps Rookie All-Stars include:

First base —  Jose Abreu, White Sox
Second base — Kolten Wong, Cardinals
Shortstop —  Xander Bogaerts, Red Sox
Third base — Nick Castellanos, Tigers
Outfield —  Danny Santana, Twins
Outfield —Billy Hamilton, Reds
Outfield — George Springer, Astros
Catcher — Travis d’Arnaud, Mets

Left-handed pitcher — Roenis Elias, Mariners
Right-handed pitcher — Masahiro Tanaka, Yankees
Relief pitcher — Dellin Betances, Yankees

Each of their 2015 Topps baseball cards will include a Rookie All-Star trophy, a feature that regularly appeared on Topps cards since the first class — a 1959 roster that included Hall of Famer Willie McCovey — that had cards in 1960. Since that time, 20 Hall of Famers and countless other memorable players have had cards featuring the trophy or rookie cup.

    Weird to see “future stars” designation on a Rookie Cup card. Previously, if I remember correctly, those were too different things.
