I am careful with buying greens thats why I have a little . It's easy to say the refs are 10 times golds .

692 greens on ebay is average of 2 each for the last 4 weeks . That is staggering number with a lot being relisted .

They wont take that chance. But that shouldnt affect what distributors have. Especially for retail. These guys sit on stuff all day long. Their whole mantra is to move older product first before putting out new product. Who knows how they distribute. For all we know they are trying to clear out older basketball product via blasters before they touch new product. It could be the case. Or its sitting at candy wholesalers. Or its actually SP. None of us really know.

Panini retail can be returned to panini for a refund if it does not sell that is why they do not make a lot .

These cards are like a triple stock paper there where not cheap to make .

I just bought 2 boxes of Prizm Retail on Ebay for $190 shipped Wish Panini would release a print run on the greens though I doubt they will

Anything that's hot. Blowout gets their hands on. See FB topps chrome 2011 and 2012 racks and blasters. Nothing new here. Stuff is drying up fast. Everyone on Blowout is buying up every target and Walmart posting their breaks espically if they are good. Their aren't your joe schmos buying these packs of Prizm by accident at Targets.

you would be surprised at how much stock retail wholesalers hold onto. Candy wholesalers are a gold mine for older product.

damn, 34 bids in less than 3 hours of a 6-day auction!

eBay.com Item Bid History

something tells me this auction may be just a tad shilled, or bid up by people owning the same card.

No doubt the card will sell for higher than it is now, but the way the bidding is being done is strange

So I go out last night to some Walmarts and actually find some Prizm.

13 packs from the first Walmart. 11 packs from the second Walmart.

The second store actually had 20+ packs, but half of them had been searched. Either they were partially opened or had tears in the top of the packs. It appears that most of the packs had been felt up since there were clear marks in the wrappers that cards were slid and felt for stickers. I ended up with 6 greens, all veteran base. The best being a Rubio and Hibbert.

I probably won't be going out of my way anymore to find these. These pack searchers are scum.

If he likes something then bids on it and wins/pays for the auction has he done something wrong???? I'm not sure what your statement is insinuating......
