What’s Buzz-worthy: The first Prizm Draft release can be dry in spots with 20 packs in a box and it being heavy on base cards, but the selection of players inside — Carlos Correa, Jose Abreu, Kris Bryant and Joc Pederson to name a few — can make a box quite entertaining if you land the right guys among the short-prints or inserts. … The amount of color went up in the Prizm releases after this one, but this is where it started for draft picks showing up on Panini America’s chromium platform. … This particular box delivered pretty well on the ink, yet this one could definitely still be topped. Given the price of these boxes these days, it’s one to seriously consider.
