In early April, the collecting crusade that captivated hardcore hoops fans last year, is coming back for a whole new season — and this time, it’s bringing a lower price point, a lower print run and even more Crusade cards with it. Rest assured, Panini America’s 2013-14 Crusade Basketball will pack a few more surprises too reports Tracey Hackler.

Due out April 7, each box of 2013-14 Crusade Basketball will deliver 18 Crusade inserts, one autograph card and one memorabilia card, all for a cost-effective $90 AUD

Company officials are adding three new collectible colours to the Crusade rainbow this year (including Teals numbered to 299, Orange Die-Cuts numbered to 99 and Golds numbered to just 10) and bringing back popular brand staples such as Quest Memorabilia (featuring a prime parallel).
