Everyone who reads this blog knows that I hate Prizm. Yet after seeing the most recent World Cup release, I see them doing things with it that should immediately be transferred to the other sports. Design disasters from Basketball and Football are gone, and to see the amount of international attention these cards are getting makes me question how it has taken anyone this long to put out a product like this.
You havent seen crazy until you see these auctions:
Dont get me wrong, I know absolutely nothing about soccer. If your name isnt Ronaldo or Pele, I have no idea who you are. Its a worldwide top sport, but not enough in the US that I know anything. I can maybe name a few guys like Landon Donovan, but others like Messi have passed my consciousness without even a thought. Then I see the prices on these cards and I am literally floored.
You are probably reading this post and thinking “what the hell is this for?” but I am telling you its worth the entertainment of watching these auctions. The cards look pretty nice to boot. When a soccer product can get this much attention, you know its something special.
