Sparkling Rookies

2015 showcased one of the strongest rookie classes in quite some time, featuring players like Miguel Sano, Fransisco Lindor, Delino DeSheilds, Kris Bryant, Carlos Correa, and many more. As always, Topps came out with the update series at the end of the season; and it looks awesome! I got two boxes myself, in hopes of pulling a Bryant or Correa. Sadly I didn't either one, but I did manage to pull a few other nice rookies.

Fransisco Lindor made a huge impact on the Indians, and even though the Indians didn't make the postseason, he proved to have a very bright future.

Delino DeShields also made a huge impact on the Rangers; going from a below .500 team to clinching the AL West. He brings incredible speed on the bases, while bringing a consistent bat to the plate.

Carlos Rodon wasn't pitching for a contending team last year, and he's only 23 years old. The southpaw pitched to a 3.75 ERA in 2015, and he still has a lot of time to prove himself.

Joey Gallo played less than 40 games last year for the Rangers, but he showed some serious power. At 22 years old, he still has a few years to develop. 

He's not a rookie, but is seemed like everyday he was robbing a home run or making some sort of spectacular play. He batted in the lower half of the Blue Jays lineup, but he was still a productive player at the plate.

The one insert that I ended up getting in the two boxes, was this awesome Jackie Robinson rookie sensation insert. This card really pops, especially with the sparkles. Topps did a great job with 2015 update!
Thank you for reading!
