The Panini America Quality Control Gallery: 2012-13 Crusade Basketball (66 Images)

June 4, 2013

Panini America 2012-13 Crusade Basketball QC Gallery (68)

You’ve seen the QC preview. You’ve seen almost every version of the Crusade insert. Today, though, we’re here to prove that there’s more to 2012-13 Crusade Basketball than you might think. A lot more. Sure, the Prizm-infused Crusade inserts have commanded most of this product’s attention so far, but there’s a stirring checklist of autograph and memorabilia cards, a crisp, clean, player-centric design and one of the coolest wrappers we’ve ever done that make this product pretty epic, too.

Every six-pack box of 2012-13 Crusade Basketball will include six Crusade inserts, three autograph cards, three memorabilia cards and six additional inserts. It is those last three — the autographs, the memorabilia and the inserts — that we focus on in the following Quality Control Gallery.

Enjoy this comprehensive look and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance prior to next Wednesday’s release date for additional coverage of 2012-13 Crusade Basketball.

    Very well done from what I’ve seen in these galleries, I’m impressed by the oversized mem cards and the depth of players in the Majestic auto checklist. Thanks Tracy!

    Tracy I keep seeing Norris Cole autographs and I still haven’t got my Norris Cole auto from 11-12 Limited. SHould I contract the customer service guy from Panini via Twitter? Just want to see whats up because I believe the card has been returned to Panini from the player. Awesome new cards, they do look crisp and clean design all around. Patches are fresh as well, keep up the great work

    I really like the base Crusade cards, clean and a nice image of the player. Though I wouldn’t complain about pulling a Majestic auto or patch card.

    Nice and crisp. Love the team colors logo crest on the fronts of the regular cards. Also like the oversized and more rectangular swatches on the mem cards. Side note-are we going to get a Father’s Day preview of the Basketball/Hockey cards included?
