Stephen Strasburg is Topps’ sixth Finest Rookie Redemption by Chris Olds

Topps revealed its sixth 2010 Finest Rookie Redemption card on Wednesday, and it’s Washington Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg.

Topps previously announced Marlins outfielder Mike Stanton as No. 5, and that No. 4 was Reds pitcher Mike Leake. Topps’ other releases for the set include Cubs rookie Starlin Castro for rookie No. 3, while info on rookie No. 2 can be found here and rookie No. 1 can be found here.

After five big-league starts, Strasburg holds a 2-2 record with a 2.27 ERA. However, he has struck out 48 and walked seven in approximately 30 innings of work.

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).
