Last week, Panini released one of its flagship products and we have already seen some of the best hits from 2021 Prizm Football. Often heralded as one of the best rookie cards for a modern football player, Prizm constantly grabs the attention of collectors and brings in record sales at auctions.
When this much attention is put on a singular product, there are bound to be some high-dollar cards to surface. Box openings have reached similar energy that they had during the Flawless LeBron James Logoman chase from earlier this year. While no one card is likely to reach the same 7-figure amount as the logoman, there have been some massive hits that deserve the spotlight.
This year’s Prizm is especially noteworthy for two key reasons. For starters, it features a rookie class with some of the best talents of any draft in the last 20 years. Players like Ja’Marr Chase, Mac Jones, and Micah Parsons all posted stellar rookie numbers, while others such as Trevor Lawrence, Justin Fields, Trey Lance, and Zach Wilson showed great promise. Put simply, this class is loaded.
Additionally, Panini added a barrage of case hits and super short-printed (SSP) cards into the mix. The Manga, Colorblast, and Stained Glass inserts all have generated buzz online in the last week. And, of course, Prizm is not complete without its Gold, Gold Vinyl, and Black Finite 1/1 parallels, which continue to sell for new highs.
Thousands of boxes have already been opened, so it is nearly impossible to showcase every awe-striking hit out there. For today, we have curated 8 cards that best epitomize the allure of Prizm, but there are sure to be new cards that will deserve a spot on this list in the future.
So let’s get right into it! Here are the best hits from 2021 Prizm Football so far:
