A Panini America Teaser Gallery: The First Box of 2012-13 Prizm Basketball Retail

December 5, 2012

Panini America Prizm Basketball Retail Break 2

Much has been made — already — about the enchanting Green Prizm parallels coming exclusively to the retail version of 2012-13 Prizm Basketball when it goes live next week. So, while hardcore hoops collectors have spent the last week feasting on the hobby version (and it’s Gold Prizms in particular), the brand seems poised for another huge boost when Prizm’s retail counterpart launches in the next 10 days or so.

Naturally, when I had the chance to bust an early 24-pack box of retail this afternoon, I jumped at it — and the opportunity to witness emerald excellence firsthand was a big reason why.

What follows is a must-see gallery that takes you pack-by-pack through that box. And just for green, gratuitous grins, I also managed to procure a few pics of some additional Green Prizms. Enjoy — and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for additional updates.

    Is there one auto per box and two greens per box on this?

      There are no box guarantees, but most boxes should deliver two Green Prizms; autographs should fall roughly one every other box.

        Nice looking Emeralds, can’t wait until it hits my local Target. BTW I think you’ve got some pretty good MOJO lately Tracy lol. Pulling Mr. Davis out of the first hobby Prizm, and getting an auto in roughly one very other box of retail Prizm. I feel like I should be sending you my packs to open lol! :p
        Thanks for the post!

    Outstanding job! These are great cards for retail. Anyone without a lcs should appreciate the exceptional quality here. I have a lcs but think I might be headed to Wal Mart to chase these prisms.

    Are the Green Prizms numbered? And are they retail exclusive?

    Greens are looking very nice! I only wish there were blaster,though. Lots of pack searching hounds in my area.

    Good to see this being made available to the retail stores as well, this product should reach as many collectors as possible in some form. Thanks for the review Tracy!

    I see all Green lights up ahead.
    There is no stopping Prizm!
    One of the best Basketball product ever produced!
    To be able to reach to all collectors especially the young ones. Nicely done!

    I have seen that there is a new Bob McAdoo card in the Prizm set. With a new image, also. Another one to hunt for my collection. I’m still looking for the one in the Past & Present set. Thank you, Tracy

    What are the print runs on Finalists and Team USA Green Prizms? Are they rare and hard to get?
