2020-21 Panini Prizm Basketball Variations Guide


2020-21 Panini Prizm Basketball Variations offer a different look for more than a dozen rookies.

Like the previous year, these cards simply use a different photo on the front and keep the same general design.

Also like 2019-20, base versions are exclusive to 2020-21 Panini Prizm hanger boxes (they mention four Orange Ice Prizms on the front and 20 cards). That means that you’re not going to find them in regular hobby packs and most retail configurations.

Fast Break parallels are also available. These have dots in the background and are only available in Fast Break boxes. They land at a rate of one per box.

How to Spot 2020-21 Panini Prizm Basketball Variations in Seconds

Variations are actually really easy to confirm — if you have the card in hand or access to an image of the back. Panini has labelled them clearly.

Flip the card over and draw your eyes to the bottom. Under the stats is the Panini logo. Directly under the logo the card will say if it’s a variation.

    Why don’t you go and check out the rariest set put out in retail since 1986 fleer this make that look over printed. The 2019-2020 Hoops Australian basketball. There none to found and when there was it wasn’t much. There is only 1 full set that I have seen . No real product to buy anywhere. Everybody chasing prizm when thai is 10000 x rarer. Plain and simple go.do your work and see.

      1) 1986-87 Fleer is not rare.
      2) Are you referring to the Neon Green parallels that are already listed here and in the main database?
