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.
