2011 Topps ‘Prime 9 Players Of The Week’ Redemption Set – Albert Pujols
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 Albert Pujols card from the set:
The back of the card features ‘9 Prime’ facts about Mickey Mantle.
A few of my favorites are:
- was draft pick #402 in the 1999 baseball draft
- played in only 133 minor league games
- was the ‘Triple Crown’ decade winner of the 2000’s with .344, 366, and 1,112
- captured three MVP Awards – 2005, 2008, 2009
- first player to go .300, 30, 100 in first ten MLB seasons
