What’s Buzz-worthy: At retail, Panini America’s Prizm NFL brand is a pretty consistent one from box to box — and it might be the best product of the year that doesn’t have a high-end price tag — but this box is an average one. I ripped and ripped the few packs inside and kept waiting for the stars to show up. I don’t think they did in this particular box save for a couple of base-card highlights. This isn’t the norm as this year’s Prizm is hot — you can find a number of breaks in the NFL forum — and these blasters are the only place to find Prizm’s memorabilia cards. As said in a past break, the stock this year seems very sturdy and clean — reminds me of Select’s stock a few years ago — and it’s definitely worth a rip. For now, it seems like it’s find-able at retail unlike some other popular brands that can vanish quickly.
Product Grade: A
Box Grade: C (an average box)
