2011 Topps ‘Prime 9 Players Of The Week’ Redemption Set – Albert Pujols

2011 Topps ‘Prime 9 Players Of The Week’ Redemption Set – Albert Pujols

I had such a good time building the ‘Prime 9 – Home Run Legends’ set that as soon as it was completed, I jumped right into the ‘Prime 9 – Players Of The Week’ set.

The set was issued in the same manner – through exclusive redemption cards that could only be processed through hobby shops.

The set is ten cards deep, and features a great graphic display as well as a super-glossy finish.

This is the Albert Pujols card from the set:

The back of the card features ‘9 Prime’ facts about Mickey Mantle.

A few of my favorites are:

  • was draft pick #402 in the 1999 baseball draft
  • played in only 133 minor league games
  • was the ‘Triple Crown’ decade winner of the 2000’s with .344, 366, and 1,112
  • captured three MVP Awards – 2005, 2008, 2009
  • first player to go .300, 30, 100 in first ten MLB seasons

  1. That is a beautiful card! Albert has the most stable looking batting stance of anyone I’ve ever seen.

  2. I’m not a machine. I’m Albert.
