Default Why no Intrest in the 2010 Crown Royale set?

Just for the heck of it, I purchashed a few boxes of this last year and got hooked! I than purchased 2 more cases, and over 3 grand in upgrading all of my cards to colored tops or rookies with autos, or subsets with jersey's or autos. I believe I may have one of the best Master sets of this out there. But I have noticed that there was never to much intrest in it. Why is that? And also, does this bode well for my VERY upgraded set in the long run? Just curious. I feel it is a gorgeous set. Love the Majestic design!!!

I liked Crown Royale when it was Pacific, but I like it now too. I love the look of the 2010, personally.

If you have the Leroy Kelly Majestic jersey I'll pay top dollar for it, I haven't been able to find one anywhere and it's the only one I need to complete the set.

I am thinking about going after the auto'ed set for basketball but for football, I have been trying to collect all the Packer autos. Here is my crown jewel! 1/1 and the only auto I have seen from him (there is suppose to be an /5 version).

I just picked up the gold 3/25 Aaron Rodgers a few weeks ago for less than 20 bucks if I remember right! My Leroy Kelly is just the base card, but I too will buy the jersey if it exists! I want all my cards to be either colored/numbered, jersey, or autoed. Well on my way! I have the Tim Tebo Auto 1/299, CJ Spiller Gold 9/10, Rolando McClain 4/50. My 2 best Majestics are a sweet 2 color 9/13 Forrest Gregg, and an AWESOME 3 color 13/25 Walter Payton. I dropped 150 on the Payton, and saw the exact same version sell for like 34 bucks a few weeks later!!!!I have a Big Ben auto/jersey 13/20 Kings of the NFL as well. I really am trying to upgrade everything! Shoot me a pm if you need extras, as I have a few.

to answer your question, people have less interest in brands that only last a few years and there's no proof Crown Royale will still be around in 5 years or even next year. that's why Contenders, SPA, etc retain value...

Fell in love with this set last year too, and bought quite a few boxes. It's probably the only set I've collected where the base cards are more of a draw than the inserts!

I had only a couple beefs with it...first, it was pretty expensive. I mean, you pay $25 a pack at your LCS and you pull $5 jerseys out of it. Even at $75 a box through Blowout (what it was the majority of the time I was buying), it was fairly difficult to pull anything that I absolutely loved.

Out of the 7 boxes or so I bought, some of my best pulls were:

Chris Cooley green auto /5
Jordan Shipley die-cut jersey auto /50.

After the 7 boxes, I realized that I wasn't getting a lot of nice pulls out of it, and when you are only getting 10 to 15 base cards a box, 4 rookies, that set would be OUTRAGEOUSLY expensive to put together buying boxes. It would be far, FAR cheaper to just buy all the cards you wanted piecemeal (even paying $100 for a Bradford auto) than it would be to keep buying the boxes. I think for the price of the box, there needed to be more base cards per pack. Also, purchasing online for an average of $20/hit, those hits just don't hold their value at all. Which is sad, it was my favorite set of the year.

I hate you. But not really! Great card!!!

I managed to pick up a gold /25 for $22. Still looking for a green /10.

Guess I was just lucky with he product.

Out of 20 boxes my top hits are.

Peyton Manning #/5 Jersey Auto

Bradford Rookie Die-Cut #/50 (LOVE this set) Might go for all of them now that the big ones in my hands also pulled the jordan shipley and another one in a group break I gotta dig out.

Bradford Rookie Auto #/299

Dez Bryant Auto #/299

Dex Bryant Auto #/25


There's some other nice ones im forgetting.

Some of you say these might not hold value. I know the rookie autos and rookie diecuts SHOULD because the nice look.

Question is, are these worth getting graded? The two bradfords and both dez's should get a 9+ easy but I don't see any graded ones around much?

I love the set as well as I'm working on the whole rookie auto set (60-70 cards I think) as well as collecting the gold veteran autos, which I have 3 of so far. The design is gorgeous, but of course the only downside is its made by Panini and a ton of the base rookies autos are redemptions, and even though Panini has them signed and ready, they won't send out the recently redeemed cards. Pisses me off like no other

I think the patch/auto die cut set is one of the best sets of 2010. I don't really like the regular rc auto set though. The whole crown thing on the top just rubs me the wrong way.

I did like a lot of the subsets though. A lot of the inserts were super nice too.

crown royale was around, just forgotten
but it might be the one per pack thing that turns people off
