2012 Topps Finest Autograph Rookie Redemption Card #1
Note: Topps will release information on these throughout the rest of the 2012 MLB season. Check their Twitter for updates. This page will be updated with the players selected to have rookie autograph redemption cards. Look for them to be of players called up to the bigs during the back end of the 2012 season.

Topps Finest Baseball is a product that has been around since the early 1990's. While not much has changed, 2012 could be a good year for this set. For one, Topps was able to get Texas Rangers Japanese pitcher Yu Darvish autographs into the product. While they will be tough pulls, expect those cards to be hot if he pitches well to start the season. The Rookie Autograph Redemption cards could prove to be crucial cards in the set. Five players making their MLB debut during the 2012 season will be included.

With a product like this, where full boxes are sometimes north of $100 I'd always advise going with singles. But of course the gamble of trying to pull a Darvish or Matt Moore will get enough people cracking open these boxes. A strong rookie class could really help this product and with Bryce Harper included in this set - un-opened product from this year will always be worth good money.
