2009/10 Panini Crown Royal Basketball Preview

Panini has made a great move in reviving the 'old' Pacific line of trading cards called Crown Royale. The set was known for its intricate die-cut cards throughout the entire set. Baseball, Football and even Hockey have had memorable Crown Royale sets and now Panini is bringing that technology to Basketball.

The basketball version will be priced around $25.00 per pack or about $100 for a 4 pack Hobby Box. Each pack will contain a Jersey/Memorabilia Card or an Autograph Card. The chase cards will be the on-card Rookie Autographs that are serial #/499 and the Kobe Bryant On-Card autographs will be popular with collectors.

It would have been nice for Panini to used more of the Die-Cut inserts of the past, however it appears that only the base set uses this technology. The inserts and subsets look more like traditional cards ... although the Majectic Autograph Set, Nothing But Net Insert, and the LeBron James King of His Court are very nicely designed cards ... they don't really fit with the Crown Royale theme.

A complete checklist, along with pictures, prices and more can be found below.
