Panini Peek: 2012-13 Crusade Basketball
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).

Too many parallels than seems necessary, but I am glad they at least streamlined the base and rookie set.Collecting Acie Law, Adam Morrison, Anthony Tolliver, Antoine Walker, and OKC Thunder (logo/name/uni somewhere on card). Have lists: Hidden Content ; Hidden Content ; and Hidden Content .
Also collecting NBA UNI ONLY versions of Atomic Refractors, Essential Credentials, Legacies, and Star Rubies!
I NO LONGER COLLECT OR SUPPORT KEVIN DURANT! HE IS THE ONE EX-THUNDER PLAYER I WILL NO LONGER TAKE CARDS OF!

"[I]But perhaps the most compelling part of 2012-13 Crusade Basketball is the [I]other[/I] Crusade chase: The 300-card gem featuring a familiar design, printed using [B]Prizm[/B] technology and incorporating [B]Blue[/B],[B]Red[/B], [B]Purple[/B], [B]Gold[/B], [B]Green[/B] and [B]Black[/B] versions.[/I]
[I]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. [/I]"
So in other words, "Totally" Certified and Prizm had a baby and out popped this new crap. Panini doing what they do best, being original (sarcasm)

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 I'd really like to see is three less product and quality on the others. Something like 3 low-end, 3 mid-end, and 3 high-end.

I thought Panini couldn't possibly roll out a product worse than contenders, but wait along comes Crusade! The design is like they combined basketball cards with affliction t-shirt designs, thanks Panini.

Liked how the durant jersey card looked. Other than that, it's just another random product from PaniniHidden Content in progress. I collect OKC. Current and former players have be in current uniform unless the attribute of rookie. I also collect former Oklahoma players, Kyrie Irving, Blake Griffin, Dikembe Motumbo, and Reggie Miller. Always looking to trade up regardless if it's a PC card. I usually ship within the next 3 week days. Want HOFer Autos.
