2014 Prizm World Cup is Going Insane

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:

2014 Prizm World Cup Cristiano Ronaldo Auto

2014 Prizm World Cup Lionel Messi Auto

2014 Prizm World Cup Pele Auto

2014 Prizm World Cup Roberto Baggio Auto

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.

  1. Great customer response on first day of release here in San Antonio. Everyone who opened a box loves them. Cards look great and the international buying on eBay will make this a huge success.

    Even if you don’t know much about soccer, what’s wrong with owning a World Cup Soccer set of the best soccer product produced to date. And, if you don’t care about Baggio, Messi, Ronaldo or Pele Autos, you won’t have any trouble selling them or trading them for something you want. Even the common autos are selling on eBay for $50 or more. Most Autos are in the $100 to $200 range. The Gold Prizms #d/10, Gold Power Prizms #d/5 and the 1/1 with NO AUTO are all selling for real money. What other sports product has that type of value at $108 per box?

  2. As I mentioned above, I am really wondering why it took so long for a product like this to happen. Huge audience.
