Crown Royale is one of those interesting hit-per-pack products that the card companies continue to trot out in front of us to separate us from our collecting dollars.  While it may sound like I’m not a fan of this set, that’s not entirely true.  I haven’t opened any of this since 2010 Crown Royale Football, and I really love the base card designs in these products (which is why I would love to see a retail version).  Some of the hits, namely the Rookie Silhouettes with the huge patch behind the player’s photo, are outstanding.  On the other hand, others have been similar to ‘standard Panini’, so to speak.

With tomorrow’s release of 2011-12 Panini Crown Royale Hockey, we have a box of four packs with five cards a giving us twenty cards for our $100.  it’s definitely a gamble to purchase this by the pack, but by the box it should come out with some solid items.  Not many changes are coming or really needed from last year’s set, and what tweaks there are should serve to make this a solid hockey product for this early i nthe season.
