I'm usually pumped for crown, but I'm not a fan of the die cut autos, and making the run up to 349 I think it was vs /249 like in years past. That Eli and Elway are sick tho.

A 33% increase is very significant.

I don't think that I've ever been excited for Panini product. From what I've seen, this looks like the same used up designs.

I've never liked the CR design. It's an easy pass every year for me...

Incorrect.

2011- 36 Rookies 29/299 7/199 =10064 /12 boxes =839 Cases

2012- 35 Rookies 28/349 7/199 =11165 /12 boxes =930 Cases

Around a 10% my estimation increase. I wouldn't being buying a box for those anyways.
It seems they have some nice Veteran HOF Silhoutes and Choice Auto's, unlike last year.

Crown Royale always seems so busy-looking to me, like the cards have too much going on. For some reason, I still like them. I can never type "Royale" correctly, though, I ALWAYS type "Roayle", then have to fix it.
