What’s Buzz-worthy: This Prizm release has a huge basic set capped by a number of short-printed Rookie Cards and subsets and these retail packs contain a decent amount of cardboard to help chase anyone you would want to find in the release without breaking the bank — and, unfortunately, the demand for hobby boxes has those boxes drying up. The large set size means it will take more ripping to build a set but thanks to this break, we also know that these retail packs can deliver autographs in addition to a good amount of inserts and short-prints. Prizm is a popular brand so these boxes will be ones ripped more and more — especially when new rookies pop up and perform well — so ripping these on the cheap along with blaster boxes might be a good way to go.

Product Grade: A-
