What’s Buzz-worthy: As noted in a past break here, Panini America’s Prizm is only available as a jumbo box in the hobby, but it has a couple of options at retail and one of them is the blaster box with a guaranteed auto or jersey inside. … This one included some star power on all fronts (base, inserts, hits). The rookies are only found with a parallel finish so that puts a little bit of a dent in the fun (you don’t get as many), but a box like this is fun if you get a few of those notables. It’s even better if you can find it in a discount bin like this one ($15 instead of $20). Prizm is a brand that can be quite flashy, so, if it’s your kind of cardboard, a hobby box might be worth a look.
