  2. I have no sympathy for any excuses for any company here. They’ve all seen record profits the last few years. Pandemic my ***. Maybe siphon some of that green out of executive’s pockets and invest in making the process go a bit faster. You’re also literally printing pictures onto cardboard, it’s not like you’re putting together IKEA furniture having to source it from around the world. These companies will come up with a myriad of excuses, the process seems easy enough

  3. Monopolies don’t work, and this is the saddest time to be a basketball card collector.

    For those gambling with the cards, “breaking”, maybe some make a profit, and think that justifies the monopoly that has removed children and collectors from NBA cards.

    Every set, the same pathetic checklist, two or three “stars” per team, and then the rookies. NBA teams have a lot of players, and in the past nearly every player every season got a card. A happy time, competition, three NBA card companies, and collectors had a choice.

    Estimated Release Date: June 22, 2022

    June 19: NBA Finals 2022 Game 7 (If necessary)

    Season is already over, and they think that is the best time to release the cards?

    When a company gets a monopoly, they get lazy, sad, and low quality.

    Thank you, Adam Silver and Panini, for wrecking NBA card collecting.

    As the preview picture shows, is the 2021-22 Zion Williamson card going to say RC rookie card? Just because he can’t be bothered playing basketball doesn’t mean he gets a rookie card every season.

    NBA card packs used to be available at the supermarket checkout and bought with spare change, now you need to take out a bank loan and preorder a box and then wait for the season to be over to get the cards of “stars” like Ben Simmons and John Wall.

    The Prizm designs? Nothing special. Just Panini soccer cards with a basketball player on them.

    1 Star – Avoid this Panini like the plague

  4. I love Prizm as a staple of the card collecting universe but I have to agree with the majority here. Panini, Fanatics and breakers have mad it impossible for a beginner or even mid tier collector to buy into boxes. Hits are terrible the companies don;t hide how $$ hungry they truly are. The worst of it is, I have probably 6 redemptions I’ve been waiting 3 years for. Still can’t leave the hobby but I’m slowing it to a crawl for now.
