Are you kidding me. What a waste of time. Wow Topps, you really put alot of thought into that one. Since you used Ryan Braun, who already has a rookie card, why not go that route again instead of a dual card.

Are these just rookie cards? Or are they autos?

i don't understand where the auto redemption theory came from. there was never even a hint at them being autographed.

Just seems that all other redemption cards are autos. Kinda lame to just have regular rookie cards in there.

i think that it's because they couldn't get those palyers to sign before release.

the rookie redemptions were designed to be released as current rookies start emerging as big time players...... at least that's how i see it.

The other cards are cool. It is great to build the hype, but this card is a joke, especially with a nice crop of rookies still to choose from. Or at least if you were going to do this stuff, go with the Royals duo or trio, if you count the man, Soria, in there and not have reprinted any older ideas.

They could have at least put some effort into it. Maybe a photo of them actually together?
