SPX rookie redemption #5 announced

19 07 2008

Instead of waiting for Colby Rasmus to be called up, or perhaps realizing it may not happen this year, Upper Deck has changed SPX card RR4 to Collin Balester.  Balester will be card # 149 in the set.

There is no change to the SPx checklist on the Upper Deck website under the rookie signatures list, but Balester is listed under the rookie redemption checklist.  Both checklists continue to list Kosuke Fukudome as RR5, even though a formal announcement has not been made.

The redemptions so far:

RR1 – Jay Bruce #146
RR2 – Carlos Gonzalez #147
RR3 – Evan Longoria #148
RR4 – Collin Balester #149
(RR5 – Kosuke Fukudome #150) – no announcement made, but checklisted
RR6 – Clayton Kershaw #151
