NFL 1996 Pacific Crown Royale

    Hello again all. Today I go NFL with a pack from Pacific. The odd part is that the die-cut are the base cards and in this pack the regular shape is the insert.

1996 Pacific Crown Royale

#CR-86 Scott Mitchell (Lions)
#CR-54 Brett Favre (Packers)
   The old school team logos are great looking.

#CR-92 Charles Way (Giants)
#CR-56 Kevin Hardy (Jaguars)
  Charles Way was a big fan favorite here in NY. He was a fierce lead blocker who was very good at catching passes out of the backfield.

NFL Regime #NR20 Drew Bledsoe (Patriots)

A couple of the backs.

   Over all a cool looking set. The die-cuts look great and are quite sturdy. I couldn't find a check list to check for rookies so I am not sure. Hardy may be a RC and Way also but I can't say for sure. 
Total Cards:
Teams Represented: 5
Rookie Cards:

Sub Sets:
 1 (Bledsoe NFL Regime) 
Keepers for Me:
 1 (Charles Way)

Front Design: 7.5 out of 10 Good pictures, nice design, in game photos, great die-cuts, good foil work, old school team logo.
Back Design:
 6 out of 10 Nice design, no team logo, good player factoid, no stats
Player Selection: 7 out of 10 Good, All good players and 1 sure to be HOFer.

FINAL OVERALL RATING: 12 Yard First Down Pass (Single). I very much like the fronts of these cards plus 1 keeper makes a first down. With 3 of the 5 cards being QB's it had to be passing.

Thanks for Reading!

  1. When these came out... I didn't like them. In fact I didn't like any Pacific products... because I felt they used too much gold foil. But... years later, the designs are starting to grow on me. Nice pack... especially the Favre.
