Crates are special item drops in Rocket League.
Crates can be unlocked with keys, which are available for sale in the "Manage Inventory" and "Crate Unlock" menus. Unlocking the crate will reveal a random exclusive item. There is also a chance of acquiring a certified or painted variant of said item.
Each crate has a unique "series" of items. Items in each crate are classified as Rare, Very Rare, Import, Exotic, and Black Market.
Keys bought will have a "trade hold" that prevents them from being traded to other players for 7 days from the time of purchase. As such, keys used to obtain items from crates will transfer the remaining "trade hold" time from the key to the item.
Keys are obtained by purchasing on your specific platform's marketplace in set(s) of 1, 5, 10, and 20.

Black Market Items
Black Market items are unique in that they are shown in the preview as an Octane Battle-Car partially covered by a purple hexagon-motif fabric. These items are dubbed "Mystery Universal Decal" in the preview, which means that the Black Market decals are applicable to all Battle-Cars.
The "Black Market" label is currently limited to decals.
