Topps continues to reveal its Finest baseball redemptions at a rapid rate. Thursday, the company announced its third rookie redemption card.

Redemption card No. 3 is Angels outfielder Mike Trout. The card will feature a sticker autograph of the Angels’ rising star. Trout follows the first two redemptions, Pirates left fielder Starling Marte (redemption No. 1) and Cubs outfielder Brett Jackson (No. 2).

Trout, like Jackson, was born this month (Aug. 7). The 21-year-old was a first-round pick (25th overall) of the Angels in the 2009 amateur draft. Aftger Wednesday’s games, Trout was batting .340 with 22 homers in 95 games.  He also has some speed, as his 38 stolen bases in 41 attempts shows.

Topps will announce the last two redemption cards over the next few weeks, if not sooner. Collectors holding the corresponding redemption card for that player can redeem it for their card online.
