Chicago Cubs SS Starlin Castro is Topps’ third Finest Rookie Redemption by chrisolds

Topps revealed its third 2010 Finest Rookie Redemption card on Thursday, and it’s Chicago Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro, who made his big-league debut less than a week ago.

Topps’ previous announcements for rookie No. 2 can be found here and rookie No. 1 can be found here.

Castro is hitting .364 with a home run and six RBI through six games. The home run came in his first at-bat and the six RBI were in his first game — a record for a debut.

Through the rest of the season, Topps will announce the remainder of the players in the 10-card set.  Each Finest Master Box includes one Rookie Redemption, which also can be found as Blue Refractors (199 copies) and Gold Refractors (limited to 50).
