2011 Topps Update: 1st Wave of '90s-Born Players
The first wave of '90s-born players to appear in a regular-issue Topps set occurred with the 2011 Topps Update set. I recently acquired this set (minus Trout RC) to complete my '10s decade Topps + Update collection to date. Starlin Castro appeared in the 2010 and 2011 Topps base sets as the first '90s-born player, but it wasn't until the 2011 Topps Update set that an influx of players began to appear such as: Randall Delgado, Brad Hand, Starlin Castro, Jose Altuve, Julio Teheran, Jacob Turner, and Mike Trout. Since I'm still missing the Trout RC (waiting for a price drop), I used the 2012 Topps M.Trout card below.
