Coming Soon via the USPS...Collin Balester

I just received an e-mail this morning from the Topps Company (actually Topps Support) stating that the 2008 Topps Red Hot Rookie card that I redeemed last year has been shipped and should be on it's way soon.

I received and redeemed card #19 from this fun little set (came with the 2008 Topps Series II box I opened last year). If you're wondering who card #19 is, it's Washington Nationals pitcher Collin Balester.

Balester won the decision in his major league debut on July 1 against the Marlins, and finished the 2008 season with a 3-7 record, with a 5.51 ERA and 50 strikeouts in 80.0 innings of work. He is competing for a spot in the rotation for the Nationals in 2009.

Something to look forward to until the season starts.
