Default So what's with these green prizms?

So I don't collect basketball as much as football or baseball, I do buy a few packs or blasters from time to time. I was at Target awhile ago and I saw the very last pack sitting on the shelf, no box or anything. So I bought it and pulled a Luke Ridnour green refractor. I browse the boards and I can tell that these things are pretty sought after. What's up with these things? How valuable are they, specificely my Ridnour? I must say, these are beautiful cards.

Note:On eBay there's 2 up for bidding starting @ 99cents and BIN for $30 and one Best Offer for $50. Still a pretty wide range.

only the top stars command big money, and these are 2-3 per retail box, i think its pretty hard to pull a good green, they arent numbered and has no stated print run. If u cant afford the golds these are the next best thing, some ppl here are having a hard time finding these, ive seen a bunch but just recently jumped on the bandwagon as ive never really cared much for refractors and low numbered inserts, and football is coming out soon so get ready for it!

Alright. So should I be proud of myself for pulling a green after just one pack? haha

That's a nice one! It would be so cool if they made baseball prizm, but Topps has to go and take all the licensing

Unless the card is a puzzle, don't all cards come from a single pack?
