2011 Topps ‘Prime 9 Players Of The Week’ Redemption Set – Johnny Bench

2011 Topps ‘Prime 9 Players Of The Week’ Redemption Set – Johnny Bench

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 Johnny Bench card from the set:

The back of the card features ‘9 Prime’ facts about Johnny Bench.

A few of my favorites are:

  • ancestry includes 1/8 Choctaw Indian
  • Straight A high school student
  • 40 doubles as a rookie is a NL rookie record
  • 2-time NL MVP – 1970 & 1972
  • 1976 World Series MVP
  • most career home runs as a catcher
