Default Prizm or Optic as the new King of The Rookie Card??

OK so no more topps in football. Chrome has always been king.
im more of a basketball guy and havent bought football cards in almost 4 years and i really dislike panini as do many collectors. But we have no choice.
In basketball when topps left prizm moved in to the #1 go to card to have and "replaced" topps chrome.

we just got optic last year and optic is nice and all but it felt and sells like a poor mans chrome card. so 2nd tier optic was.

since football has had optic for a few years now do you think optic will be the new topps chrome? or is it prizm that will take over now as the new topps chrome and the go to rookie cards and refractors.

i know in basketball prizm is pretty much the best product.
in basketball panini makes 2 products that collectors really go after and condsider flagship and that is prizm and national treasures.

i know contenders is the best auto rc but what will be the new chrome king?
Prizm or Optic for football?

im leaving a poll and would really love to hear the collectors and hobbies opinion.

me personally i love prizm and i think that will be the next topps chrome.

Optic. Optic has on-card autos. For th e most part, keep your stickers.

I never considered chrome as king in football. Contenders in football or SPA when it was around.

To hear the kids in club tell it:

Prizm is not it
Only Optic got that hot sh!t


Than they all throw their hands up and start doing selfie bombs.

Optic needs a better design
Prizm are sticker autos

So I'd take optic over prizm but contenders is better than both

I like Optic. But I would still consider Contenders and NT the 1 and 2.

- Prizm. Essentially this is Panini's take on Topps Chrome, but as they say, you can rarely top the original.
Prizm NFL though, while Topps Chrome was in existence, never took off. Safe to say that 2012 - 2015 will never
take off. 2016 however, was quite popular, especially with Zeke/Dak lighting it up. Unfortunately, sticker
autos each year since 2012. Lots of refractor colors to chase as well. But like the other releases, i like base rookie cards

- Optic. 2016 NFL Optic's debut release, was somewhat of a breath of fresh air. Collectors from the 1990's
will recognize the layout of 2016 Optic, the first year Panini released the brand. The RC photos are a bit
ridiculous looking, but feature on-card autos. Lots of refractor colors to chase as well.

If prizm= Topps..where is the base topps set for prizm? Donruss and Donruss optic align better with the Topps and Topps Chrome. Clearly this was the intent of panini.
