We report magnetroresistance measurements on superconducting single crystals of K3C60. An analysis of the experimental data yields superconducting state and normal state parameters, including the upper critical field Hc2(T), coherence length ξ, penetration depth λ, scattering time τ, mean free path l, and zero temperature resistivity ρ{variant}(0). Some of the intrinsic single crystal parameters are significantly different from those extracted from thin film and powder specimens.
