*sits down, gets ready for a new Cards Over Coffee post*
*takes a sip*
I have been good boy recently when it comes to retail buying. I haven't been buying. Mostly because of lack of funds but also because I am trying to make better decisions of what I collect and open. No more of the I see, I need approach. I guess you can call it "Collecting Maturity".
There are some products still though that are weak spots for me because of the rookie cards and because of the shininess.
Today's Coffee Break is just that.
Since 2012, anytime I had the opportunity to open some Prizm football I have. It's my favorite Panini football product and every year I find myself chasing certain rookie cards and whatever NY Giants parallels I could get my hands on.
So, when my father picked up two hanger boxes of Prizm, I pleaded my case for one since I hadn't found any yet.
Luckily for me, he obliged.
Here is my first Prizm football rip,
Each hanger box of 2021 Panini Prizm football comes with 20 cards. There are no guarantees other than hopefully a good time....and 4 hanger exclusive Red Ice prizms. Each hanger costs $26.
This years base set is 440 cards deep, which is huge for Prizm. Also makes it very hard to pull the good rookies.
Especially with only one per hanger box.
I have traded for two of my rookie wants from this years set with Lawrence and Toney, but still want to chase down Mac Jones, Zach Wilson, and Trey Lance.
It's Prizm so it has a tendency to be overflowed with parallels, here are the options for inserts,Green, Green Ice, No Huddle, Blue Ice /99, Purple Power /49, Gold /10, Gold Vinyl /5, and Black Finite 1/1.
New Recruits has 10 cards to collect in the set.
I already touched base on the insert parallels, now onto the base card parallels.
*takes a sip, this could be awhile*
Black & Red Checker, Black & White Checker, Blue, Disco, Green, Green Ice, Lazer, Light Blue, Neon Green Pulsar, Orange Ice, Pink, Purple Pulsar, Red, Red Ice, 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, Green Scope /75, Orange Wave /60, Purple Power /49, Red Shimmer /35, Blue Shimmer /25, Navy Camo /25, Forest Camo /15, Gold /10, Gold Shimmer /10, Gold Vinyl /5, Green Shimmer /5 AND Black Finite 1/1.
NO HUDDLE PRIZMS: Base No Huddle, Blue /79, Red /50, Purple /35, Pink /15, AND Neon Green /5.
OH SNAP! What I first thought was a silver Trey Lance wasn't. However, this silver Variation Trey Lance is almost as cool and a great find.
I followed that up with Davis Mills Red Cracked Ice.
The rest of the Red Cracked Ice.
And that's it. Probably literally too.
*takes a sip before finishing up today's post*
This was a pretty solid break with Trey Lance and Davis Mills. Not to mention I landed the Plaxico base card I needed for my Giants collection. There was nothing to complain about this break.
Thoughts on my break and Prizm welcomed in comments.
Have a great Wednesday.
