This is week 7 of the Topps Prime 9 Redemption Program. Using cards found in 2011 Topps Baseball Series 2 hobby and jumbo boxes, collectors have been able to obtain the following players.
Week 1 was Johnny Bench.
Week 2 was Albert Pujols.
Week 3 was Jackie Robinson.
Week 4 was Derek Jeter.
Week 5 was Mike Schmidt.
Week 6 was Hank Aaron.
Now for Week 7 if you have one of these...
...its time to go visit your HTA Local Hobby Shop and redeem those cards. Here is what you will get.
A Mickey Mantle Prime 9 limited edition Chrome Refractor card. In every Topps Baseball release this year card number 7 has been reserved for Mickey Mantle, so it makes complete sense that week 7 would belong to The Mick. Mantle’s “Prime 9 Moments” include taught to switch hit by his father at age five, began professional career as a shortstop and winner of three AL MVP Awards:1956, ’57 and ‘62. So get to your participating LCS and redeem those cards. And don’t forget to fill out the back of your redemption card to be entered into a sweepstakes. You could win a trip to the 2012 World Series.
Check in next week to find out who is on the card for week 8.
