Hardcore hoops collectors will have the opportunity to embark on a bona fide collecting quest this summer when Panini America releases the premiere edition of Crusade Basketball, a product that delivers a bold new twist on the popular Crusade insert program that first appeared in Donruss Baseball and Rookies & Stars Football way back in 1998.
2012-13 Crusade Basketball begins with a refreshingly uncluttered base-set design on a 100-card checklist that includes 15 Rookie Cards. Accenting the base is a 100-card base Crusade parallel and two 25-card base inserts — Nobility and Royalty. The product also delivers two 100-card autograph inserts (Quest Autographs, Majestic Signatures) and two 100-card memorabilia inserts (Quest Memorabilia, Majestic Materials).
But perhaps the most compelling part of 2012-13 Crusade Basketball is the other Crusade chase: The 300-card gem featuring a familiar design, printed using Prizm technology and incorporating Blue, Red, Purple, Gold, Green and Black versions.
Each box of 2012-13 Crusade Basketball (six packs per box, five cards per pack) will deliver three autographs, three memorabilia cards, six Crusades and six additional inserts.
We’ve provided an extended first look at the product below. Stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for additional updates.

I am sure they’ll be…..OOOOOO SHINY!
How much would this be Tracy?
SRP is $20 per pack.
Nice looking preview, that Anthony Davis has a VERY familiar and excellent design. Thanks Tracy!
are you guys using our obsessive compulsion with checking the Knights Lance looking for contender sp info to market the basketball cards? cuz if so, it’s working! lol.
Hmmm . . .
I can tell you that we are preparing the rest of the SP list as we speak!
Are there SPs in Contenders basketball?
any idea when the SP list you mentioned will be finalized and published?
will there be lillard autos ??
At this point, we do not have an autograph deal with Lillard.
Looks good, I know many baseball PCers love the Crusades, can’t wait to see one in person
Wow. Another Prizm kind of product. Exciting!!!
I enjoyed the Crusade design in Elite Black, now to have it as a stand alone set is brilliant. Good job Panini. Can’t wait to break some of this.
Stunning! Really like the fact you guys are bringing back such classics.
That A. Davis card is nice, the base set of an all white card looks like countless others of their product. I agree with Dunkin that 6 different versions of each card seems a bit to much. Glad not to many rc’s as well. DO they really need to have two 100 GU sets? Haven’t gu ran it’s course? The base and 2 inserts sets look the exact same LAME.
what happened to pelicans?
That logo starts getting used next season.
Is there autographs of brandon jennings
luv the design..looks like theres gonna be some sick autos and patches…
