Cincinnati Reds legend and Hall of Famer Johnny Bench is the first Topps Prime 9 player as announced Tuesday.
Each week, Topps will announce which players can be redeemed for Prime 9 cards found in packs of 2011 Topps Series 2.
Collectors can bring their Week 1 redemption cards to their participating hobby shops to turn them in for a card and be entered for a chance to win a trip to the World Series as long as they fill out the form on the back.
Each card is a Refractor and the cards can be found two per hobby (or jumbo) box.
