What’s Buzz-worthy: While there’s no way this one can compare to a previous A+ graded blaster break here, this one was a little surprising with a non-rookie memorabilia card and a respectable mix of stars and inserts. Prizm is one of those brands where people seem to be clearing the shelves. (Why? Check out the sales for parallels of rookies such as Jayson Tatum … whoa.) This box was lighter on the rookies — half as many as the last box — but if a blaster can deliver as many as four standard RCs and parallels atop that? Well, that means you can do pretty well for the price. This one wasn’t super-flashy, but it still felt like a decent rip.
