Panini shows off Finite Black Prizm card

After weeks of teasing and showing glimpses of the soon-to-be released 2012 Prizm football set, Panini America shared a glimpse of its Finite Black Prizm card on Sunday as the NFC Divisional playoff game was beginning.
The Finite Black Prizm is going to be a 1/1 card, and there will be autographed versions of the card too.
The Tom Brady card released by Panini will give collectors a peek of the design of these chase cards. You can see how it looks in this post.
Here is a little background about the set, which is set for release next month.
The 300-card base set will include 100 rookies, and rookie cards will be inserted one per pack. A hobby box will contain 20 packs, with six cards per pack. If you buy retail, expect to find four cards to a pack and 24 packs to a box.
One hundred veterans and 100 of the rookies will have autograph parallel cards.
Panini is promising two autographs per hobby box, with at least one Red Prizm card, a Rookie Dominance insert, a Decade Dominance card and at least two more inserts. There will be no relic cards included in the set.
With the cards coming out in February with the Super Bowl still fresh in football fans’ minds, it might get a good following.
