How popular are these cards? The reason I ask is that I just picked up in a lot a 2009 Finest Redemption of Kyle Blanks that I don't particularly need.

For the most part, very popular. Kyle Blanks, to my dismay, is not so popular, especially right now. Probably a $0.99-cent card.

Agree with Meliah. I would say Smoak (TEX) is also a lock. I'll take 2 of these 3 pitchers as the remaining candidates: Lincoln (PIT), Arrieta (BAL), or Ely (LAD).

I have to think these three are a lock to be added--Stanton, Posey and Strausburg.

Posey has an auto in the base set so he won't be in it.

They only put guys in it who don't already have Finest cards.

I heard something about Carlos Santana getting called up very soon so I would say he will also be one.

I say Strasburg, Stanton, Santana, Smoak, & maybe Boesch. I would also guess that #10 will be the Strasburg and it will be auto'ed!

One must think that they'll add Jake Arrieta as well.
They might end up using strasburg as #10 for the autograph if he isn't next.

Boy do I hope you are right!!! My number 10 has been redeemed for about a month now! :)

I think they might hold off on announcing Strasburg just so they can drive their sales and hype a little longer.

I also think that those paying top dollar for the Topps Red Hot Rookie redemption #1 are going to be disappointed when they announce some one other than Strasburg.

Didn't Hanson have 2 redemptions last year? #2 and #10? Can't see why they wouldn't do that for Strasburg then.

Yes they did, but they didn't have the guys to chose from last year like they do this year.

There are too many good rookies coming up to put the same guy in the set twice in my opinion.

I cant agree more, I have about 14 redemptions now and planning redeeming the whole set.

As for finest I had the worst box break on those I scored a #7 and a Colvin letter auto. Other then that though it was not good.

I got real lucky with the Finest. I opened 2 boxes and my redemption's were #1 & #10!!

The Astros just called up Top catching prospect Jason Castro. Looks like we have another name to throw in there.
