2011 Topps ‘Prime 9 Players Of The Week’ Redemption Set – Mike Schmidt
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 Mike Schmidt card from the set:
The back of the card features ‘9 Prime’ facts about Schmidt.
A few of my favorites are:
- Was an All-American at Shortstop
- Selected as an All-Star in the minor leagues while playing 2B
- 4-HR Game on is resume: 4/17/76
- Only player with 8 NL HR Titles
- Most career home runs for a third baseman
- 10 Gold Gloves in 11-year span
