Collectors love colored parallels. Gold and Red spur tingly feelings with baseball and football collectors. Yet, for basketball collectors, green gets them going.
The latest example of this is from 2012-13 Panini Prizm basketball. The green parallels are retail-only exclusives, but turned into some highly collectible cards. Ten cards from Prizm have green parallels valued at $100 or more.
Even some of the lower end cards book at around $20-$15, which is not bad for a retail pack of cards. So how hot are the Prizms Green?
Of the parallels in Prizm, green is selling well. However, the gold cards are not to be overlooked. While pricing is not available for these cards due o scarcity, a trip the completed section of eBay should tell you all you need to know about these cards.
