Basketball | 2012-13 Panini Prizm, Blake Griffin, Kobe Bryant, NBA, Panini America, USA Basketball | Comments (1)
Panini America‘s next new basketball line will perhaps have collectors looking at NBA cards a different way.
Through a prism … or Prizm.
When it arrives on Oct. 24, 2012-13 Panini Prizm will arrive, as the company puts it, “a familiar, but dramatically improved technology that has been missing from the Basketball hobby.”
Mocked up to be printed on what appears to be chromium-like stock, Prizm will consist of a 300-card base set that includes 100 rookies. Each 20-pack box, suggested retail price $100), will include two autographs, two Prizms parallels and two inserts. There will be six cards per pack and 12 boxes per case.
