First there was the Gold Rush. Then 10... make that 20 Gold Tickets. Now we have the return of the Prime 9 Redemption Program.
Last year we had week-to-week announcements for the Prime 9 program, which featured some of the best players at each of the 9 fielding positions. This year it is all about swinging lumber. The 9 players on this year’s cards will all be Home Run Legends and will feature sluggers such as Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron and Mickey Mantle.
Inside Hobby and Jumbo boxes of 2012 Topps Baseball Series 1 there will be randomly inserted Prime 9 Redemption Cards at a rate of two cards per box.
Beginning on February 13th, Topps will announce the “Prime 9 Home Run Legend of the Week”. If you have the corresponding Prime 9 Redemption card for that week you can bring the card to your local participating HTA store and redeem it for an exclusive limited edition Topps Chrome Refractor.
In addition, like last year, the back of each redemption card functions as a sweepstakes entry. If you fill out the entry form on the back before you redeem the cards, the storeowner will submit that entry to Topps. You could win the Grand Prize, which is a VIP package for two to attend the 2012 MLB Home Run Derby.
We will have full coverage again this year of the Prime 9 player announcements so be sure to check in once the program starts.
