Panini America Provides Detailed First Look at 2017-18 Crown Royale Basketball

Panini America 2017-18 Crown Royale Basketball Kevin Durant

Has it really been that long? It seems almost unfathomable that Panini America’s popular Crown Royale Basketball franchise has been away from the market as a standalone product since the 2009-10 season. Granted, it has helped that some of the brand’s calling-card inclusions — the landmark Silhouettes and Rookie Silhouettes, Crown die-cuts and Panini’s Choice Award die-cuts — found a cozy home within the Preferred brand. But after way too many years away, Crown Royale Basketball is back!

Set to arrive in hobby shops across North America in late August, 2017-18 Crown Royale Basketball will deliver, on average, one autograph and one memorabilia card in each hobby box (12 cards per box, 16 boxes per case). Longtime fans of the brand will relish the opportunity to once again collect the classic Crown Royale base set with traditional die-cutting and the stunning new Crystal parallel numbered to as low as one.

Additional highlights of the triumphant return are many and include . . .

  • The iconic Silhouettes and Rookie Silhouettes featuring massive pieces of memorabilia and on-card autographs; look for Super Prime and Tags parallels numbered to as low as one.
  • Ultra-rare inserts including Pacific Marquee, Power in the Paint and Regents of Roundball.
  • Classic die-cut inserts in Panini’s Choice, Mamba’s Choice and Roundball Royalty.
  • Look for some of the NBA’s top stars in the regal Crown Autographs insert.

We’ll have plenty more on the triumphantly returning Crown Royale Basketball in the coming weeks right here on The Knight’s Lance. Until then, enjoy this extended sneak peek:
