Question, maybe you guys can help.
I just got back into cards after 10 years away and was wondering what they make determine a prime patch card from a regular patch card? When i stopped collecting a patch card was a patch card and that was that. Do they just number the prime cards lower and throw any patch in there and call it prime because it's numbered lower? The reason I ask is because i pulled this today and was looking around and saw the same card but it had a solid red swatch. Why wouldn't they save this swatch for something better then just a prime card?

This may be a dumb question if it is sorry, I was just curious about the whole regular/prime thing.

Prime is just Panini's way of saying patch... its nothing more than branding... Upper Deck had the first patch cards in 1999, and called them Upper Deck Patches... Donruss's first patch cards were in 1999 as well in Leaf Rookies and Stars and called the set Prime Cuts....

Thanks man. These past 3 months I've been all kinds of confused.
No it's numbered 19/50. When I saw it I thought it was gonna be numbered lower but apparently not. I wish it was a 1/1.

I can only imagine. If you need any help, shoot me a PM. Im pretty good at clearing the fog sometimes, plus its hard to show me a card set I never heard of or know nothing about.
