Default 17/18 Prizm - Hyper, Ruby Wave or Green

Which of the (non silver) unnumbered Prizm parallels will hold the strongest value in the long run?

Hyper (only in hobby)
Ruby Wave (in hobby and retail)
Green (only in retail)

Green although they're no longer tough pulls like older versions.

I agree with the Green = Hyper >> Red Wave

Tatum's green will have an inflated value since it matches the Celtics color nicely.

Man...I just got a green RC in hand this weekend (pulled an OG) and they are really sharp looking. Itís no one big but it might be my favorite looking prizm card that I pulled. Anyone else thinking green RCís are one of the nicest designs this year?

I love the green and have since the beginning and still do because they were a part of the first Prizm product. Prizm basketball is one of the few products that I am pretty much addicted to. At one point I had greens of all of the big rookies but had to sell all of them earlier this year due to medical reasons. I saw a Tatum green today and it looked really sharp. Iím hoping to add one to my collection soon.

Based on looks, here's my preference: Green > Hyper > Ruby

But in terms of value, hypers were only available in Hobby (which was significantly more expensive than Retail), so shouldn't that hold the most value? I don't remember the odds of each of these btw (and I'd assume that would play a factor).

After watching so many breaks, I'm starting to think the hypers might be a little undervalued. There's def less of those than green

Is it possible Panini can invent new colors by next year to beef up sales?

Green may look the best but hypers are by far harder to come by...
