A Teaser Gallery: Panini America Busts Two Early Boxes of 2012-13 Crusade Basketball

June 10, 2013

Panini America 2012-13 Crusade Basketball Teaser Gallery (2)

On Wednesday, the crusade for Crusade begins when Panini America’s highly anticipated 2012-13 Crusade Basketball goes live in  hobby shops across North America packing six Prizm-kissed Crusade inserts, three autographs and three memorabilia cards in every six-pack box. While the collecting world not-so-patiently awaits Crusade’s arrival, we’re going to shed a little light on what you can expect from a few boxes of the debut product with the throwback theme.

Following is a pack-by-pack thrill ride through two early boxes. As you’ll see, the colorful Crusade inserts provide a vibrant, collectible contrast to the white design elements of every pack. Enjoy this extended first look and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance tomorrow for what promises to be a must-see episode of Panini Unwrapped starring 2012-13 Crusade Basketball.

    I really like the look of the box and packages! I think the Crusade colors are really going to get a lot of attention with sellers and buyers! Overall it’s a really nice looking product! The autos are nice because they are simple but yet beautiful! Well done Panini!

    The packaging is great already!
    Boom. Beautiful cards. Loving the clean fresh white.
    Then the Prizm technology jumps out of the back.
    That Parallels on Prizm Cards are superb.
    Technology taken to the next level.
    The beautiful contrast is so attractive that it is so beautiful to see.
    Im sure it will be awesome to have those in hand.

    Bonus anthology, bonus three Autos and three Memorabilia with a chance of a patch

    Wow. We surely got a winner!
    We are very excited about this Teaser Tracy!

    LET the Crusade of Higher standard begins!

    Congrats to You and your team!

    Very well done!

    im thinking if the colored Crusade cards were few and far between and numbered. Would’ve had some serious value I think. They are a nice looking card and with the different color options numbering would fit. So now I’m done thinking.

    This product should’ve just been all Crusades. Those cards are stunning! Hopefully they catch fire like the baseball ones from the late 90s.

    Who the heck is Alan Anderson? I have busted a ton of 12-13 product, including all the Panini NBA releases and don’t recall him in any other product.
