New Year’s Day is barely in the rearview mirror, so it might be too early to say that something is “the most anticipated release of the year.” We’re going to do it anyway. In all caps, too.
That felt good, although we already cooked our resolution of laying off the caps lock. Our other resolution? Tell you about all the goodies packed inside 2023 Panini Prizm NFL Football.
Most seasoned collectors already know the deal — why Prizm is such a beloved brand. Not only is it chock-full of eye-catching and unique inserts, Prizm is also known for its incredible titular Prizm parallels.
This year, the roster of parallels includes Blue Ice, Green Scope, Orange Wave, Purple Power, Navy Camo, Gold, Gold Vinyl, Black Finite and Snakeskin.
Making things even sweeter, those vibrant designs grace a deep player list including star rookies, Pro Bowl veterans and memorable legends.
Speaking of those rookies, it’s a fantastic year to look out for first-year gems waiting in packs. Anthony Richardson, Bijan Robinson, Puka Nacua, Jahmyr Gibbs and Jaxon Smith-Njigba are among the standouts of a loaded debut class, and all have autographs tucked inside 2023 Prizm Football.
About the only thing sweeter than finding one of those first-year signatures would be hitting the beloved Color Blast insert. The polychromatic collection is even better this year, with Color Blast Duos making their debut. Look for team pairs like Joe Burrow plus Ja’Marr Chase and Josh Allen plus Stefon Diggs in those brand-new gems.
Another sought-after set is the fan-favorite Manga, an ultra-rare pull with awesome illustrations. As for other treasures, you can find 10 numbered Prizms, five inserts or insert parallels and two autographs per box, on average.
In addition to the aforementioned rookies, superstars of today like Justin Herbert, Justin Jefferson and George Kittle all have their John Hancock in 2023 Prizm Football, as do legends like Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders.
Pick up a hobby box and make sure your year starts strong.
