Box Breaks: 5 More Blasters of 2017-18 Prizm

So the first Box Break of 2018 will be a familiar one as I was able to find 5 Blasters of Prizm at Target yesterday. Now I understand a couple of things, that A) There maybe a little bit of Prizm fatigue in the secondary market and B) Blasters are the least desirable of the retail products as most collectors are convinced Blasters provide the worst shot at good hits (though in my breaks, all my top hits have come from Blasters). The thing is, maybe some collectors have the luxury of turning down Prizm blasters in favor of the Value Packs and based on from what I've read on Blowout Cards, some Targets get massively stocked, but here in Corpus Christi Texas, it's just not that easy. I've had a rough time finding this stuff on retail level. Since it's been out, I've only found 8 Blasters myself, and 10 Value Packs and those all came from the same Wal Mart. My parents were able to find 9 Blasters between two Wal Marts but 0 Value Packs and our Target seemed to never carry Prizm at all as we never found it period.until yesterday when I found these 5 blasters. Anyways, beggars can't be choosers and it's fun break anyways, so let's see what I got!

Overall Thoughts: Welp..I mean I'd call it a mediocre break. It wasn't a total bloodbath but it wasn't great either. Pulled 5 Rookie Silvers but only 2 of those were decent (the Ntilikina is a nice card to just stash in case he blows up) and the Lonzo Silver Emergent was a nice pull, although not worth too much. That's probably my last hurrah with Prizm.
