Releasing on the night Victor Wembanyama makes his NBA debut, 2023-24 Panini Prizm Draft Picks is among the sports card products set to arrive as October turns into November.
Here’s a look at what’ll be in your local hobby shop, offered through your favorite breaker and available online.
2023-24 Panini Prizm Draft Picks Basketball
Draft products don’t always elicit a lot of oohs and aahs, but with the most talked about player in years set to arrive, this one is generating some buzz. Victor Wembanyama cards have been hot and, barring injury, will stay that way.
With 13 different cards–not counting the many parallel versions–most collectors will have at least a fighting chance to grab a Wemby card or two via these boxes. With his earlier appearances in Bowman branded products, it appears as if the multi-skilled big man will appear in both Panini and Topps made releases.
Each box of Prizm Draft has ten packs with four cards per pack and features this season’s top draft picks A typical box will include four autographs, four inserts, and eight parallels per box.
Wemby has an autograph deal with Fanatics, so we’ll have to settle for unsigned cards but at the going rate of around $185-$200 per hobby box, these should be strong sellers. There are also Choice and First Off the Line boxes. A bunch of Wembanyama cards have already been pulled from early arriving boxes and listed for sale.
2023 Topps Tier One Baseball
It’s once again a simple product with no base set. Two autographs and a relic card are what you’ll find in 2023 Topps Tier One, but the cards are generally low numbered.
