2012 Topps ‘Prime 9′ Home Run Legends Redemption Set – Babe Ruth

2012 Topps ‘Prime 9′ Home Run Legends Redemption Set – Babe Ruth

The 2012 Topps ‘Prime 9′ sets were issued through redemption cards that were inserted into hobby boxes of the Topps 2012 flagship baseball card set.  The cards were numbered and each card represented a specific card it could be redeemed for.

These special insert cards were redeemable only through hobby shops and Topps made these cards available for redemption on a very limited basis.

The card’s design is great, and I have been a fan ever since seeing them.  The high-gloss finish is unlike any that I have seen before and I like the fact that Topps rewards the baseball card business owner with such a nice, exclusive offer.

This is the Babe Ruth card from the set:

BABE RUTH1

 

Some interesting Babe Ruth Home Run facts:

  • 499 versus right-handers, 215 versus lefties
  • 367 on the road, 347 at home
  • 123 against Detroit is most versus any single team
  • 85 most at visiting ballpark
  • only 70 games with 2 home runs and just 2 with 3 in the same game
  • 349 solo home runs
  • 133 came in first inning of a game, most of any inning

  1. HATE the Topps Hobby Shop redemption program!! Mine gave them all away so was completely out when I tried to redeem the cards that I was owed. Skip the middle man and get them to the collectors.
