When I saw the red, white, and blue refractor-esque cards in Prizm basketball, I could only hope they would find their way over to the baseball side.
Fortunately they did. Tracking them down, however, was a very different issue.
I was lucky enough to finally find the Pedro Alvarez rw&b card for a little over a buck with free shipping. Browsing through the other auctions the seller had, I came across two more Buccos. Better yet, I managed to be the only bid on all three - three glorious cards for a little over $4 shipped right to my door.
The down side is all three of these players haven't had the greatest seasons. Jason Grilli was dumped to the Angels after a rough start to the season, and has excelled on the West Coast. Pedro has turned into a domestic terrorist, assaulting innocent patrons along the first base line nationwide with errant throws. And poor Andrew Lambo is stashed away at AAA, while baseball gods Michael Martinez and Brent Morel do their best impression of that kid in t-ball who couldn't get the ball out of the infield if his life depended on it.
It might be time to track down some more Prizm parallels, since this has started to be one of my favorite releases each year.
