The countdown to 2012 Prizm Football is no longer a countdown at all. It’s blossomed into a full-blown frenzy thanks in large part to yesterday’s Quality Control Gallery that offered the first live glimpses of the highly anticipated new product. Here at The Knight’s Lance, we promise to do our level best to continue increasing the pre-release hype with a selection of galleries leading up to next Wednesday’s launch date.

Today, we’re bringing you a sterling selection of new gems that surfaced during last week’s QC process, most notably some of the sweet base inserts and a collection-making cache of Prizm, Gold Prizm and Red Prizm Die-Cut parallels.
