Panini Prizm Gold entice football collectors
By Susan Lulgjuraj | Beckett Football Editor
Prizm football came out last week – Panini America’s answer to chrome to cards, a favorite among card collectors.
Prizm utilizes chrome-like technology on a new base design for its football product. The set features all the big football stars with 2012 rookies as well.
But like all “chrome-ish” type of cards, collectors seem to love color. In this case, it’s gold.
Gold Prizms are numbered to just 10 each, adding scarcity to a popular parallel with a clean design.
Just how well have the gold cards been doing?
Well, the few people who got to pull a Robert Griffin III, Andrew Luck or Russell Wilson gold cards have probably been doing a little dance for days.
But it doesn’t have to be one of the hot new rookies getting all the attention on the Prizm cards.
Even popular veterans seem to be drawing interest from collectors.

– Wes Welker $70
– Reggie Bush $65
– Johnny Unitas $111.50
