Just like basketball, 2012 Panini Prizm Football is being driven largely by parallels and not by autographs. Gold Prizm parallels, all numbered to 10, have been the early favorites for a lot of collectors. Shortly after the set's release, multiple Andrew Luck Gold Prizms sold on eBay for more than $1,000. Others are snatching bids in the hundreds, which is big for a set that doesn't focus heavily on traditional hits.
The black-bordered Finite Prizms are also generating a lot of buzz. But because they're one-of-ones, once individual cards show up, they're bound to disappear into a personal collection. Other parallels in 2012 Panini Prizm Football include retail-only Green cards, die-cut Reds and basic Refractors.
A total of 25 tops rookies also have photo variations, which have Gold Prizms. While that invariably doubles the number of Gold cards for these players, it didn't dampen bidding. Whether you view it as ten cards or 20, they're still extremely rare.
The set isn't without autographs. In fact, they fall two per box with much of the focus falling on the deep 2012 rookie crop. Top players like Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III and Russell Wilson are all moving well, but they're not creating the same buzz as their colorful counterparts.
Below is a real-time look at the 50 most-watched 2012 Panini Prizm Football cards currently listed on eBay. The list is constantly updating itself, so check back often, particularly if you're looking for top cards in the set or tracking the action.

“black finite refractor Superfractor” lol. I guess these aren’t getting what the basketball got..It’d help if people weren’t so lazy and looked up what the heck they are selling and labeled it properly. Most of these aren’t even right
