By Chris Olds | Baseball Editor
For those of you who found Prime 9 cards in packs of 2011 Topps Series 2, which arrived on Wednesday, you might have been left scratching your heads.
Scratch no longer.
Topps announced the particulars of its latest baseball card promotion on Friday afternoon and unveiled that the Prime 9 cards are good for special Player of the Week Chrome Refractor cards that will only found at participating HTA hobby shops.
Oh, and each card also is good as an entry for a contest where you can win a trip to the World Series.
The redemptions are found two per hobby box — 1:18 packs in standard boxes, 1:5 in jumbos — and are good for the player of the week as selected by the company for the week that is marked on the card. The selections begin on July 18.
Those who redeem the cards should fill out the forms on the back to have a chance to go to the Series. Store owners will submit all redeemed cards to Topps.
