For years, Panini's infamous Black Boxes have been synonymous with high-end industry events and giveaways. They became a brand without even having a mainstream release. Until now. 2010-11 Panini Elite Black Box Basketball boasts three autographs and two memorabilia cards per pack, as well as two limited inserts and one base card. The high-end release is also notable for bringing the popular Crusade inserts to basketball, as well as Panini's first book cards for the sport.
