After thousands of online votes, the “Final Five” athletes have been chosen for a chance to be featured on Card No. 1 in 2016 Topps® Baseball Series One, joining a line of players that has included Hank Aaron, Ted Williams and Derek Jeter. It is the first time ever fans have participated in selecting the No. 1 card for the set.

The finalists are:
· Kris Bryant, Chicago Cubs, 3B
· Josh Donaldson, Toronto Blue Jays, 3B
· Bryce Harper, Washington Nationals, OF
· Buster Posey, San Francisco Giants, C
· Mike Trout, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, OF
Baseball fans are encouraged to vote and promote the contest on social media to help get their favorite player featured on Card. No. 1, and using the hashtag #VoteCardNo1.
