Default Green Prizms are retail exclusive...

Tracy just replied to a post on their blog. With two Prizms per box and only a gold /10 variation so far mentioned, what are the other "Prizms"? There can't be just gold....

Hmm...I'm not sure. I was surprised to hear Green were retail only. There's got to be more, right?

So the only Prizm (refractors) in hobby are the Gold /10?

That seems wrong to me. Why would they do that? Just don't seem right.

I doubt that beacuse it does say 2 prizms a box. Maybe they just have a basic refractor look to them.

So we have to get the hobby and retail too.
Since its on retail target would be green.
For us collectors prizm would be a fan favorite
Especially the double rookie class!

Oh you are right, I forgot about the regular Prizm's (non-colored), those will be hobby too. So hobby will have Prizm and Gold Prizm /10. Retail will have Prizm and Green Prizm? Dang, I'm going to miss the Green Prizm...

for the retail version of football u get 1 auto 1 prizm and 2 green prizms so im guessing this will be close to the same for basketball. Really confused why they made the green retail only but the chase of the gold makes hobby worth it

Serious question, how many cases do they normally make? I honestly know pretty much nothing about that.

But, if they happen to have a gold prizm for every card, which is possible, then between inserts and autos there are probably 500 cards in the set, a gold in every box would produce enough for about 415 cases. Is that reasonable, or no?

Actually, after some math that's probably not even close haha. That would mean that each rookie auto would only have about a 25 print run!

I'm guessing though for this product that even the regular prizms will sell very well. I mean, in theory, the odds of pulling a kobe prizm, are 1 in 150 boxes! wait, is that right? ugh I'm confusing myself. I think that's right though, 2 per box with a base set of 300 mean that in theory you'd have to open up 150 boxes to get every player

damn, if they make 3 thousand cases, those gold are going to fall exactly one per case, which actually makes sense.

He could (shock).... actually like Panini's products? Not every "real" collector is an avid protester of Panini, let the guy live. Not a fan of alot of their stuff either, but I'm really looking forward to Prizm as well.

Cue the "crap cartoon image" "steal ideas from topps" "long live honest company UD" posts lol.

I will buy a ton of retail, I just hope they get it in the store somewhere around hobby release, it's usually very late in my area, if they could get it there quick like topps does i'd buy everything sometimes I slack on it because it's late. I got a feeling this will hold value a bit though because of the setup of release and it's basketball chrome styled cards.
