2011 Topps ‘Prime 9 Players Of The Week’ Redemption Set – Ichiro
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 Ichiro card from the set:
The back of the card features ‘9 Prime’ facts about Ichiro.
A few of my favorites are:
- Was hitting 500 balls a day at age 7
- won seven Pacific League batting titles in a row
- second player to be ROY and MVP in same season
- only player in MLB history with 10 consecutive 200-hit seasons
- holds single-season record of 262 hits
