The highest-profile free agent last season has a new home in Los Angeles this year — and he just might have a new home in your collection, too.
Topps has announced its final HTA Prime 9 card of the year, and it’s Albert Pujols (get a complete Pujols checklist and OPG here) who is the newest player to be part of its hobby shop redemption card program.
All collectors who found a Week 9 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.
Here is the final list:
Week 9 — Albert Pujols
Week 8 — Frank Robinson
Week 7 — Ernie Banks
Week 6 — Alex Rodriguez
Week 5 — Mickey Mantle
Week 4 — Reggie Jackson
Week 3 — Hank Aaron
Week 2 — Babe Ruth
Week 1 — Willie Mays
Note: The card numbers do not coincide with the week of release.
