Derek Jeter ain’t no rookie…

12 03 2009

JayBee has posted the first two 2009 Topps WBC redemption card winners. Card #1 is Lee Jin Young from Korea while card #2 is Derek Jeter.

Two things.

1) Topps, you didn’t put a card number on the redemption, so how the heck am I supposed to know who I got?

2) The print on the bottom of my WBC redemption card very clearly says “…stay tuned to to find out who your World Baseball Classic rookie rising star is.”  Isn’t card #2 Derek Jeter? Since when does he qualify as a “rookie rising star?”

I had a feeling that I wasn’t going to care much for these cards.  Now I know.

*UPDATED*  Young’s played professional baseball in Japan since 2000.  I’m not sure he qualifies either.
