Topps World Baseball Classic Redemption, Red Hot Rookie

ngoepeI’m not sure if I should be excited about this. Last week I learned that the WBC redemption card I got from my 2009 Topps series 1 box is redeemable for a card of Gift Ngoepe (En-Wee-Pay), a product of South Africa, and a prospect for the Pittsburgh Pirates.
I was hoping for Yu Darvish — just to say I had a card of his, especially now since Team Japan won the Classic — but I suppose it could have been much worse; I was worried that I might end up with a Jerry Hairston Jr., Sidney Ponson or even a Ivan Rodriguez card.
And while I’m on the topic of Topps redemptions, where the hell is my 2008 Topps Red Hot Rookie Lou Montanez? Topps sent a note out about two weeks ago claiming these cards were shipped, via USPS letter. I’ve not received mine yet. Gah!
