‘The Mick’ is Topps’ weekly redemption

Topps announced its redemption card for Week 5 in the Home Run Legends Prime 9 program today, and this week’s choice is the Mick, Mickey Mantle.

Personal preference: I wish this had been redemption card No. 7, especially since Topps always reserves card No. 7 in Series 1 baseball for Mantle. Oh well.

Mantle joins Willie Mays, who was the first card announced in the promotion two weeks ago; Babe Ruth, who was card No. 2; Henry Aaron, who was No. 3; and Reggie Jackson, who was No. 4 last week.

Each week, for nine consecutive Fridays, Topps will reveal another player. Collectors then can bring their redemption card to a participating card shot and get an exclusive Topps Chrome Refractor of Jackson. Or, collectors can fill in the back panel and mail it to Topps.

Redemption cards can be found in 2012 Topps Baseball Series 1 Hobby packs (1:18) and Jumbo packs (1:5). Each card is denoted by a Week number (1, 2, 3, etc.).
