Those holding those Red Hot Rookie Redemption cards better get them logged in to Topps quickly as it has just been announced that card #2 belongs to none other than Gordon Beckham of the Chicago White Sox.
Gordon was just recently called up to the White Sox and made his major league debut on June 4 against the Oakland Athletics. So far, he is 4-35 for a .114 batting average, but has driven in 4 runs for the Pale Hose (as of June 15, 2009).
There is something new that Topps is going to try with Beckham's cards. One in every ten of Beckham's cards will be autographed card. That's right, for every ten redemptions, one lucky collector will get his card autographed by Beckham. White Sox fans will want to add this card to their collections. Ladies and Gentlemen, START REDEEMING!!!
Reviewing the early checklist, we have:
- #1 Fernando Martinez
- #2 Gordon Beckham (1 in 10 will be autographed)
P.S. In my jumbo box, I got Red Hot Rookie #3. I can't wait to see who I get this time. jba
