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
