No joke, this is like the 6th or 7th stocked target I've seen with rows of blasters sitting like this, but only 4 racks and no retail. Lots of people passing on them like me.

My local Target finally got some in stock that I at least know of. I've been checking a couple times a week since Prizm came out. Anyway they had 3 blasters and 20 cellos. I bought them all and got killed. Best cards was a Markelle Fultz rwb and a Donovan Mitchell and Markelle Fultz emergent prizm. I'm done with retail for awhile.

Stop buying new Prizm. It's over. It's available, but pulling anything significant is a longshot. I bought three rack packs today at Walmart - all duds.

That's like 9 packs and 9 rwb prizms. Solid sample size! You should have got at least one Tatum, Ball, Fultz or Kuzma silver.

Front loading the retail with gems in the first wave...there’s a reason you can buy these now and they’re stocked on the shelves...nothing but duds

Vegas has been cleaned out everywhere from the start.

I think a big part of the reason the blasters are sitting is originally a ton of people were buying to flip on eBay. Then the market got flooded and it became not worth the effort as the price seems to have gone from ~30 to 25.

Overall in my experience the cello packs have a positive roi when opened at 10$ but you're going to go through tough stretches as you'll end up with a bunch of 1-3$ cards but eventually hit a 200$ silver that covers a ton of them.

As for the blasters I Agree the blasters are a losing proposition but this has always been the case with opening just about everything although we have been spoiled with prizm at different times over the last few years.

If that's the case then now we wait and see how quickly they dry up on the secondary market.

It's very possible. I've bought over 50 cellos the last 2 days. I've only opened 8 of them, but they are trash. 3 or of them didn't have one silver in any of the packs. Also one cello had the front of the base cards facing out on the front an back, never seen any of them packed out like in 3k+ of cello opened so far. Tempted to sit on the rest for awhile.

not sure how many of you guys are new to Prizm retail, but what was seen in the "first wave" is far far far what opening retail packs is about lol

Found one rack pack at Wal-Mart. Hit Ball Silver and Markkanen Silver. I’ve had zero luck with these up until this one. Probably busted about 15-20 rack packs and nothing of note until now.

Well, I decided to open a sealed case of blasters that I bought when this stuff first came out. Paid ebay ($500.00). Best thing out of that was a green Kuzma and a emergent green prizm Tatum. That was really it. Worse than what I just bought and busted at Target two days ago. Oh well.
