2013 Panini Prizm Baseball Recap

As I am waiting for my box of 2014 Panini Prizm baseball to get here, I thought I would recap the box of 2013 Prizm that I bought a few months back.

I am lucky enough to live within an hour of a card shop.  Usually, his prices are higher than online, which is both understandable and fine with me.  I am happy to buy from him, as he gives a great deal on singles.  A few months back, I went in looking for any new Red Sox cards he might have and I saw one lonely box of 2013 Panini Prizm Baseball on the shelf.  Long story short, he sold it to me for $55.  Like the saying goes, I couldn’t afford not to buy it.

I busted the packs right on the counter.  I got my two promised autos: Joe Nathan and Sergio Romo sticker autos.  I traded them to the owner for a ton of supplies.  I am still a kid at heart, so if I bust open a pack of cards and get my favorite player, I am happy.  Two packs in, I got a Carlton Fisk base card and was thrilled.  With all of the base cards, rookies, and inserts, I was very pleased with the box.

In the last pack, I pulled what later turned out t0 be the “most interesting card” of the box: an orange die-cut Adam Warren rookie, numbered to 60. The card is beautiful. I don’t normally like die-cut cards, as I find them tricky to store. But I really liked this card, and the shop owner didn’t want it.


At the time, Warren wasn’t on my radar and I am not a prospector.  So the card was put in a sleeve and stuck on a shelf with thousands of other cards.  Last week, when I was looking through some stacks of cards, I came across it again.  Only this time, Warren was on my radar.  This guy is doing some outstanding work in the Yankee’s bullpen.  I don’t know if he has the stuff to be a closer, but he is a promising young pitcher.
