Breakin' Wax:2021 Prizm WNBA

As I expected, cards at Christmas time were not plentiful. I actually wouldn't have had much to open at all in that aspect if it wasn't for hobby friends, I did many trades within December.

However, my Christmas wasn't completely empty handed on cardboard. I had to make a list for my mother-in-law of things I was interested in for Christmas. I had a feeling finding cards wouldn't be easy so I tried to not only focus on what I wanted the most.

So, on Christmas morning other than getting together for breakfast, she also brought out a gift bag full of stuff. It had the usual candy (which I am taking it very slow on with my recent diabetes news), a couple of kitchen items she felt I needed, 20 stamps (pwe time!) and then a blaster box of cards. I must say before showing off what I got that I didn't specify what sports I collected and just put down any sport in hopes some would be found.

And to my luck there was. It was in the form of a 2021 WNBA Prizm blaster box that came with 5 packs of 4 cards along with 5 inserts or parallels.

I was just happy to see cards to open, though not a big WNBA fan like I was in the 90's with Rebecca Lobo and the NY Liberty. I had actually stared at these blasters and almost pulled the trigger a few times since I like Prizm, but the price point scared me away at $35 a pop.

Regardless of how this break turned out, at least I didn't shell out the money to buy it lol.
Here were a couple of rookies I found. One of you will have to tell me if I landed anything special.

Green parallels.

I see A'JA Wilson is on the box front so that's gotta be good right?

And my silver Prizm. Always like the silvers.

Overall, not sure how I did, but it was fun to open something a little different.

Let me know your thoughts on this break in comments!


  1. No plans to buy these, so thanks for showing them off!

  2. The only reason I'd ever buy a box of these is if there were any Japanese women in the WNBA to chase. That's the only reason I shelled out $10 for that pack of women's soccer cards. With these being $35 a box, I probably would just track down the singles I needed.
