Prizm football is one of my favorite Panini products when it comes to shiny and rookie cards. I think this is THE product and it has shown in the past for both basketball and football if you are looking to have the best rookie card of someone.
So, it's a yearly chase for me trying to add the top rookies to my collection.
Despite the 2022 rookie class being a bit weak, I still was planning to buy some if I found some in the wild and did.....TWICE.
Here were my rookie card pulls this time. Got a QB, but he will never play and my rookies overall were much weaker than box one. Overall, there are 400 cards in the base set and 100 of them being rookies so it won't be easy to find a top rookie player unless you can afford to buy a ton.
This year, it seems Panini once again upped the Parallels in Prizm. You can find the following parallels,PRIZMS PARALLELS: Black & Red Checker, Black & White Checker, Blue, Green, Green Ice, Light Blue, Orange Ice, Red, Red Sparkle, Red/White/Blue, Silver, Snakeskin, White Sparkle, Orange /249, Purple Ice /225, Blue Wave /199, Hyper /175, Red Wave /149, Purple /125, Blue Ice /99, Blue Sparkle /96, Green Scope /75, Orange Wave /60, Purple Power /49, Red & Yellow /44, Red Shimmer /35, Blue Shimmer /25, Navy Camo /25, Gold Sparkle /24, Forest Camo /15, Gold /10, Gold Shimmer /10, Green Sparkle /8, Gold Vinyl /5, Green Shimmer /5, Black Finite 1/1, Black Shimmer 1/1.
NO HUDDLE PRIZMS: Base No Huddle, Blue /79, Red /50, Purple /35, Pink /15, Neon Green /5.
PREMIUM BOX SET: Pandora /400, Black Stars 1/1.
Silver Stephon Gilmore.
I believe this is a rookie variation since I don't see a sepia version above in the parallels. Hopefully this guy pans out next season.
Here were my Red, White, Blue parallels. Not as good as box one by any means.
Overall, this is my last break of Prizm football for this year. It will be cheaper to trade for the key rookies I need.
Thoughts on my break this time welcomed in comments!
