Babe Ruth is Topps’ second Prime 9 redemption


By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor

If you have card No. 2, then you can do your best Sonny Bono now.

As in “I got you, Babe.”

Topps announced its second HTA Prime 9 card today, and it’s Babe Ruth who is the second player to be part of its hobby shop redemption card program.

All collectors who found a Week 2 redemption card in their 2012 Topps packs (two per hobby or HTA Jumbo box) can exchange their cards for the Ruth Chrome Refractor card seen here at a participating hobby shop.

Topps will announce the remaining nine Home Run Legends each Friday.

Week 2 — Babe Ruth
Week 1 — Willie Mays

    I traded my 2012 Topps Home Runs Legends week #1 at my local card shop and I was given a Hank Aaron card. According to beckett and Topps week 1 is suppose to be Willie Mays. Did i recieve the wrong card?
