|2010 Topps Red Hot Rookie #3 Brennan Boesch|
Topps announced today that Brennan Boesch is #3 in their 2010 Red Hot Rookie Redemption program. This marks the first time that a Tiger has been included in this redemption set since its inception in 2008, despite the emergence of premier rookies like Armando Galarraga, Rick Porcello and Ryan Perry during those years.
No matter, for now all is redeemed (no pun intended). Boesch has been the biggest surprise in baseball this year and has been a force to be reckoned with all season. Yet his absence from all baseball card releases (except for 2010 etopps) thus far has been conspicuous, to say the least. Hopefully, this card ushers in an inclusion of Basho in subsequent releases this year.
Many thanks for the veritable Topps blogger JayBee for bringing this to my attention. This is one Tigers fan who certainly welcomes this great announcement.
