Those holding those World Baseball Classic Redemption cards better get them logged in to Topps quickly as it has just been announced that card #1 is of Lee Jin Young of the South Korea and #2 is of Derek Jeter of Team USA.
In four games, (as of March 11, 2009), Lee is 3 for 8 with one home run and five runs batted in, leading the Koreans to a 3-1 record heading into second round play.
In two games (as of March 11, 2009), Jeter is 2 for 5, scored one run, walked once, and hit one double. Team USA sports a 2-0 record, and will continue into the second round of play.
Neither card is autographed. For both fans of either the Korean team or of Team USA, you will certainly want to add either of these cards to your collections. So for those of you with Redemption card #'s 1 & 2, START REDEEMING!!!
The updated checklist now includes:
- #1 Lee Jin Young, Korea
