Breaking News: Panini America Cracks First Box of 2012 Prizm Football (Gallery)
Finally, the week football fans and collectors have been anxiously awaiting for months has arrived — and we’re not necessarily talking about Super Bowl week, either. We’re talking about something perhaps even bigger (at least in collecting circles): Prizm release week.
In three short days, Panini America’s 2012 Prizm Football, one of the most anticipated sports card products of this or any other year, will finally be live in hobby shops across North America. The extraordinary secondary-market performance of Prizm’s trailblazing basketball counterpart, in concert with the product’s much-improved utilization of the popular chromium printing technology, has sent expectations for Prizm Football to seldom-seen heights.
Beginning Wednesday, collectors finally will get to see for themselves what all the fuss is about. Actually, you can start to get a pretty good sense by perusing the gallery that follows. Late Sunday night, we got our hands on the first hobby box of 2012 Prizm Football for the express purpose of this exclusive sneak peek.
Buckle up and settle in as The Knight’s Lance takes you pack-by-pack through a one-box joyride that delivered a healthy dose of thrills and chills (not to mention two numbered autographs, one Red Prizm Die-Cut, two base Prizms, one Rookie Impact Prizm, three additional inserts and 22 Rookie Cards).
Enjoy the gallery and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance all week long for continued coverage of 2012 Prizm Football — and Super Bowl XLVII — on location from New Orleans.
