2012 Topps ‘Prime 9′ Home Run Legends Redemption Set – Reggie Jackson
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 Reggie Jackson card from the set:
