Is the 2023 Panini Prizm Draft Picks Collegiate Football Box a Draft Bust?

Hyped to Flop?

Alright, collectors, the Panini Prizm Draft Picks Collegiate Football Trading Card Box for 2023 is here, but should you care? It’s selling the dream of 4 autographs, 4 Silver Prizm Parallels, and 8 Prizm Parallels per box, but are these stats just glossy distractions from an underwhelming set? 🤔📉

First Off the Line? More Like First Off the Mark!

Yeah, it’s the “first collegiate football product for the 2023 draft class,” but is being first enough? Has being the first mattered in any of the previous seasons? The NFLPA did recently cut off Panini so if football products are limited in 2023, perhaps collectors will take a longer look at collegiate cards.

Fanatics has secretly, or not so secretly, signed many of the top QB’s in the 2023 draft class to exclusive autograph deals. That’s bad news if you’re chasing autographs from the likes of CJ Stroud, Bryce Young and Will Levis, all are rumored to be Fanatics exclusives.

Super Rare or Super Rarely Worth It?

Look, they’re talking up “super rare Color Blast and Stained Glass inserts,” but let’s get real: how many of us are actually pulling those unicorns? Everybody knows the big hits go to Backyard Breaks or Packman.

Insert Drama!

Classic inserts like Prizm Break and Brilliance are back, along with newbies like Trophy Hunting. But if they’re so “classic,” why do they feel more like a repeat episode of a show you stopped caring about three seasons ago?

Buyer’s Remorse?

Let’s not kid ourselves. At the price some of these boxes are going for on eBay, you might be better off investing in a Jay from Mojo Sports autograph. High risk, high reward? More like high risk, why did I bother? 💸🚫
