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 Topps.com 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.
