2011 Topps ‘Prime 9 Players Of The Week’ Redemption Set – Jackie Robinson
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 Jackie Robinson card from the set:
The back of the card features ‘9 Prime’ facts about Robinson.
A few of my favorites are:
- Starred at UCLA in basketball, football, track, and baseball
- Won a batting title in lone minor league season
- Innaugural Rookie Of The Year Award Winner
- Led NL in steals in two of first three seasons
- First ever Black MLB analyst
- Awarded Presidential Medal Of Freedom in 1984
