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.

User Reviews

Forgot to rate product.. I rate overall 4, because I dislike sticker autos & off-centered autos.

I love Elite Black Box, except for the sticker autos.. they try to hide the sticker, but you can still tell what they are, since a lot of the autos are off-centered, which I dislike! I’ve been able to obtain most of the Lakers autos (status & elite versions)… still looking for a few Elite version autos…. also looking for all “base cards” Trying to complete the base set… I have about 60 of 200 so far. It’s going to be a tough chase, since print run is /99. Hardest set I’ve tried to complete so far. The lowest print run set I’ve been chasing is Chronology both years.. . /199 & /250 print run.. contact me if you have any BLACK or Chronology for trade/sell… USER ID on this site “JPLEAZME” ebay ID: “jpleazme805”
