2021 Panini Prizm Baseball adds new parallels and inserts to the Optichrome MLBPA set.
Each Hobby box is expected to have three autographs along with multiple Prizms parallels. There are also the FOTL (1st Off the Line) and Quick Pitch H2 formats with exclusive cards.
2021 Panini Prizm Baseball Base / Prizms Parallels
Unlike most of the other sports, 2021 Panini Prizm Baseball opts for three base groupings. Joining the common Base set is Tier II and Tier III, which is home to the toughest cards.
The 250-card set comes with a large rainbow of color, including the Hobby-only Giraffe Prizm.
Exclusive to Hot Boxes, the two-toned Navy Blue-Carolina Blue Prizm parallels arrive once per case. Each Hot Box has 24 of these cards.
On top of that, collectors can find exclusive Donut Circles Prizms in Quick Pitch H2 Hobby boxes, and exclusive Shimmer Prizms in FOTL boxes.
2021 Panini Prizm Baseball Inserts
The 2021 Panini Prizm Baseball insert lineup features Fireworks, Lumber Inc. and Rookie Class.
While inserts aren’t usually treated to the full parallel assortment as the main set, Illumination is one of four inserts to match the base cards in this regard.
Rare chase inserts include Color Blast and the all-new Lava Flow.
2021 Panini Prizm Baseball Autographs
Autograph collectors can also look forward to a few different sets in 2021 Panini Prizm Baseball.
In addition to the main Signatures line, there’s the 100-card Rookie Autographs set, plus Pro Penmanship, which has a Hobby-Exclusive Gold Vinyl version. The Quick Pitch format offers exclusive Donut Circles Prizms.
Estimated Release Date: May/June 2021 TBD
