Share:

2021-22 Panini Prizm Draft Picks Basketball offers a colorful collegiate look at the season’s rookie class. That means parallels galore, plentiful autographs and several inserts that add even more color, some in different ways.

Hobby is one of several configurations for the product. Here collectors will find a variety of tough exclusives plus an average of an autograph per pack.

The main base set consists of 100 cards. Living up to its name, it’s focused on draft picks using chrome as the backdrop.

Variations offer a slightly different spin on base cards using alternate photos. Parallel colors and print numbers are similar to the main cards.

Signatures come in a few forms. Draft Picks Autographs are one of the central ones, offering yet another twist on the base set. In hobby packs, these have Hyper, Red (/199), Blue (/149), Purple Ice (/99), Blue Ice (/75), Orange Pulsar (/49), Mojo (/25), Gold (/10), Black Gold (/5) and Black (1/1).

College Penmanship and Sensational Signatures are other autograph themes. Both have nearly identical parallels as Draft Picks Autographs.

Flashback heads back to Prizm’s early days, applying past designs to college standouts. Fireworks has found a home in many Prizm sets over the years.
