Q: What is the difference between Champion (show) lines and having Champion parent(s). 

A: I am not an expect, but here is what I was taught growing up in a show home.  Neither assures your pup will be show quality, and any claim outside the first 3 to 4  generations is irrelevant and has little impact on your pup. Champion lines can show that your pup has breed standard dogs in their pedigree making the assumption that the chances are greater that your dog adheres to breed standards. It does not assure health, and temperament. Your chances for show quality improves with a Champion parent. But if that Champion parent was bred to a pet quality pup, that means your chances for a show quality pup is greatly diminished. Of course Champion to show quality or Champion to Champion gives the highest chance at a show quality pup, but there is still no guarantee.
