Card of the Day: 2008 Topps Red Hot Rookies Jay Bruce Autograph
I sure hope Topps isn't jinxing Jay Bruce by featured autographed cards of him in all their rookie redemption programs.
Recently, Topps announced that Bruce was the number three redemption in the Finest Rookie Redemptions. Yesterday, the company announced that Bruce will have an on-card autograph for Topps Series Two Red Hot Rookies Redemption.
Anyone holding redemption card number one can redeem it at Topps.com.
These redemption cards fall at the rate of one per hobby Series Two box and the exchange cards will be printed on Topps Chrome Refractor technology.
The cards are expected to ship the first week of November so you have plenty of time to try to get one of the first actual Bruce cards.
Since the announcement was made, the redemption cards have been selling in the $50-$70 range.
Two lucky collectors picked these up for $4.95 on eBay before this announcement was made, but the majority of them listed sold for around $20.
