Upper Deck used to do the guaranteed 1 Mem per box, Panini doesnt do that(which is prob a good thing considering the value on patchs now that they made a million of em). I still look at the retail, but i never buy it anymore. And as for Prizm, that was my worst box break since 10/11 sp authentic. Absolutely Horrible!!
i agree with everything this guys says except prizm does have more redeeming value than the avg retail just becasue people are color prizm crazy and you can actually see some money back if you pull a solid green or rookie.
Lots of new threads- mid/high end basketball and baseball prospect autos. I love this hobby!
