Topps has announced that 5 rookies, including Michael Pineda, who is just coming off of pitching a hitless, 2 strikeout inning in his first All-Star game appearance, will be featured on their own 2011 Topps Heritage cards exclusively available at the upcoming National Collector’s Convention. These rookies did not have cards in the regular 2011 Topps Heritage Baseball release.

There will be limited to one card per day, per person.
