Topps has announced its sixth HTA Prime 9 card of the year, and it’s Alex Rodriguez who is the newest player to be part of its hobby shop redemption card program.
The New York Yankees third baseman is entering his 19th season in the majors and has 629 career home runs, placing him sixth on the career list. With his first home run of the year, he will tie Ken Griffey Jr. for fifth on the list.
All collectors who found a Week 6 redemption card in their 2012 Topps packs (two per hobby or HTA Jumbo box) can exchange their cards for the Chrome Refractor seen here at a participating hobby shop.
Topps will announce the remaining nine Home Run Legends each Friday.
Week 6 — Alex Rodriguez
Week 5 — Mickey Mantle
Week 4 — Reggie Jackson
Week 3 — Hank Aaron
Week 2 — Babe Ruth
Week 1 — Willie Mays
