When collectors start ripping packs of the 2012 Topps Baseball Series 1 on Feb. 1, some will uncover Prime 9 redemption cards (two per hobby box) good for the Prime 9 Home Run Legend of the Week.
Starting Feb. 13, on a weekly basis, Topps will announce the Prime 9 Home Run Legend of the Week. Collectors holding the corresponding Prime 9 redemption card for that week (each card is denoted by a week number: 1, 2, 3, etc.) can bring the card to their local participating HTA store and redeem it for an exclusive limited-edition Topps Chrome Refractor featuring sluggers such as Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron and Mickey Mantle.
In addition, the back of each redemption card functions as a special sweepstakes entry for a chance to win tickets to the 2012 Home Run Derby. Collectors should fill out the entry form before they redeem and the store owner will submit the entry to Topps.
