I donít need down comforters to keep me warm this winter. I donít need Grannyís quilts or my father-in-lawís electric blankets, either. All I really need are a few emerald sheets ó uncut, of course ó from the upcoming 2012 Prizm Football. Thatís what I immersed myself in yesterday afternoon that ultimately heated up most of the Panini America Production department.

Cue the trumpets: Green Prizms arenít just for basketball anymore. Greenís good for the gridiron, too. Indeed, those retail-exclusive Green Prizm parallels that have ignited a secondary-market feeding frenzy in 2012-13 Prizm Basketball are coming to 2012 Prizm Football ó and once again, theyíll be available only in retail.
