2011 Topps ‘Prime 9 Players Of The Week’ Redemption Set – Hank Aaron

2011 Topps ‘Prime 9 Players Of The Week’ Redemption Set – Hank Aaron

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 Hank Aaron card from the set:

The back of the card features ‘9 Prime’ facts about Hank Aaron.

A few of my favorites are:

  • Played shortstop in the Negro Leagues
  • Joined Braves after being unsigned after Dodgers tryout
  • First member of the ‘3000/500 Club’
  • MLB’s leaders in career RBI and Total Bases
  • Only player in MLB history with (15) 30-Home Run seasons
  • Awarded ‘Presidential Medal Of Freedom’ in 2002
