A New Hyun-Jin Ryu Factory Set Variation Card

It has just come to my attention that there is a Hyun-Jin Ryu card that is brand new to me.

When Topps issued their retail factory set (commonly sold at places like Target and WalMart) they included a special 5-card pack of Rookie Variations.  They feature the 5 most popular players to have rookie cards in their Series 1 and Series 2 sets, and Hyun-Jin Ryu is included.  Along with Ryu are Manny Machado, Jurickson Profar, Shelby Miller and Jose Fernandez.

So, now we have 3 different Ryu Topps cards from the flagship set.  Take a look at all 3 below.  There is the short-printed factory set variation, the normal Ryu base card, and the short-printed Series 2 variation.  They are all numbered #661.

BTW, I'll have pics from the 2013 Topps Update set ready to share soon and it includes 3 additional new Ryu cards.   That's right Ryu fans, he will have 6 different Topps flagship rookie cards available to chase after.
