Panini America Enters Red Zone with a New Parallel in 2012 Prizm Football (Gallery)
The Red Prizms are coming! The Red Prizms are coming!
With all due respect to Paul Revere, there’s a new parallel arriving in 2012 Prizm Football next month that deserves to be trumpeted by any means possible — whether your mounted on horseback, using a megaphone, Tweeting, blogging, Facebooking, Skyping or simply having meaningful discussions in your hobby shop. It’s the hobby-only Red Prizm Die-Cut that will fall roughly one per box when 2012 Prizm Football releases in early February.
So far in our continuing preview of this highly anticipated new product, we’ve shown you uncut sheets of the base Prizms, Gold Prizms and the Green Prizms. But no one has seen the resplendent Red Prizms . . . until right now. While the following gallery of images taken from one uncut sheet doesn’t detail the die-cutting that will take place on these beauties, it does shed captivating light on the deep, dimensional etching on these cards and the way the cards seem to cast a brilliant glow.
But don’t simply take my word for it. Take a look for yourself now (and after you’re done, let us know which of the Prizms you’ve seen so far are your favorite). Of course, you may want to reserve your final judgment until after you’ve seen the nasty Finite Black Prizm 1/1s, which we’ll showcase right here on The Knight’s Lance in the coming days.
Until then, these images should have you seeing red . . . and that’s a good thing.
