The recipe calls for saltines, can I use Panko breadcrumbs in place of
My assumption is that crabcakes have been made in Maryland before the advent of saltine crackers.

I don't see why not. I'd just adjust the salt, assuming your panko crumbs are "unseasoned" and plain panko aren't salty.

I love crabcakes made with panko. I'm not sure what makes a Maryland crabcake authentic besides the crab, but I almost always use panko with West Coast Dungeness.

You can use bread crumbs or panko--just don't use too much. The less you use, the better. The model crab cake, to my taste, comes from Chris's Marketplace--I buy them at DC's Dupont Circle farmers market regularly. I don't think he uses any filler at all.
Maryland crab cakes contain Old Bay seasoning, and a bit of Worcestershire sauce and mustard.
