2005 Topps Rookie Cup #45





















Card Review:
8.8 nice unexpected surprise when Topps produced this set in '05.  At this point in time, any new Wallach is a welcomed event.
Fun Facts: *1982 Topps did not include the "Rookie Cup" trophy on the front of the card. Subsequently, none of my friends believed me that Wallach won one.
*Wallach was actually the Topps Rookie Cup winner for 1st base, though this card only list him as 3rd base
*Hubie Brooks was the 1981 Topps Rookie Cup 3rd baseman
* This picture appears to be from '82, not Wallach's '81 Rookie Cup season
Number of this card in my collection: 28
