Dirk Is King!

See, he even has a crown on his head. Or behind his shoulders, whatever. Panini recently released their Crown Royale NBA cards, I guess they got the name from Pacific at some point. Anyway, I'm pretty much a cheap skate, so I doubt I'd ever buy a pack of these, but I had to pick up a few cards of the man at least. This is the die-cut base card.

I also grabbed this Royalty jersey card for a couple bucks. I really like this set. It's definitely one of Panini's better ones, even if it is a little cheesy. Cheese can be good. At least they don't look so much like their other releases. The one weird thing about this set are the All-Star cards. I don't believe Dirk has one, but a lot of other fringe players do. A lot of them have only made 1 appearance. Where are the superstars? You'd think that a set called All-Stars would include perennial guys, not a bunch of one hit wonders. Oh well, what do I know? Later.


  1. I don't think I would buy a pack either, but those are nice Dirk cards.

  2. I think the Crown Royale base cards are pretty sweet. Nice pick ups.
