Jeff Samardzija is the 4th Finest redemption

28 07 2008

That didn’t take long.

Called up last week, Jeff Samardzija is already appearing on a Topps card. He’s the forth of the Topps Finest  redemptions from this year.

Perhaps the most amazing thing about Jeff is that he overcame having a third arm in order to make it to the majors. Here on the card you can see the vestigial limb tucked into the belly of his jersey.

And the fact that Jeff got a card so quickly makes one wonder why they Fukudomed around so long with some others.

The redemptions so far:
1. Johnny Cueto
2. Jay Bruce
3. Kosuke Fukudome
4. Jeff Samardzija

It’s a clean sweep for the NL Central so far.  I’m not sure who’s left from the division that still deserves a card, though.
