What's Buzz-worthy: Prizm is one of those brands that can yield big-money cardboard in both its hobby and retail formats if you land the right names on the right color of parallels. This box's highlights -- one RC and the Lazer parallels, which are gaudy but striking in how they move light. These don't deliver as much as other brands such as Donruss or Score -- it definitely felt like it needed more -- but there is an autograph or jersey card in every box. If you like this brand and want to chase no matter what the price, then go hobby or even FOTL -- there's plenty to find in those boxes. Blasters here, based on the few I've ripped there's potential ... but they can run a little less flashy at times. (Not all blaster types include Lazers so check those side panels for a notation on them.)
