Nuttin But The Hits:2018 Panini Prizm Football Blaster Box

With Topps no longer in the football business, I must turn my sights to Prizm to replace the empty feeling in my heart left by the departure of Topps Chrome.

I try to get some every year in some form or another. This year football cards have meant even more to me with the Giants having the best rookie in the draft so I NEEDED to get his Prizm cards. So I went blaster box in my first break. Not sure if there will be more breaks of it or not depending on my finances, but I at least opened one.

Let's see how I did.
2018 Panini Prizm boxes come with 6 packs  of four cards. You will find one hit either an autograph or memorabilia card. I guarantee you that 9 times out of 10 you will find a memorabilia card. That's just how retail works.

I knocked down two Giants right off the back with Odell and Shepard.

But, failed to find the Saquon I desperately seeked. Kerryon Johnson was a nice find however. He has played well for the poor Lions. I remember another running back who did as well....

Instant Impact Dante Pettis. Very colorful!

These parallels are insane! So cool looking. Wished I had gotten Saquon or a Giant, but I did okay especially finding a Zeke. I know a Cowboys fan who may enjoy that.

And my hit, as a KNEW it would be, a Prizm jersey card. this one of KeKe Coutee who has looked good at times for the Texans.
So there you have it. I came Saquon-less in my break but I think overall it was fun and that's what matters most. I will say it didn't take me long after this break to seek out a Prizm Saquon and find one. That post to come at a later date.

Your thoughts on my break are welcomed below!

  2. Glad you eventually got your Saquon. As for Prizm... I'm more of a Donruss Classics kind of guy.
