Crowdsourcing: 2018-19 Prizm Basketball Retail Break Data

It’s here! It’s here!  2018-19 Prizm Basketball retail has started to hit store shelves and fill shopping carts across the country. Yay!

2018-19 Prizm Basketball FOTL Analysis

The latest exercise in frustration comes to us in the form of 2018-19 Prizm Basketball. It’s not so much that everyone builds a set of Prizm cards on day 1, or ever for that matter. It’s really that we want to open a box and turn around and sell what we bought as quickly as possible.
