Panini America Honors Classic 1982 Design with Insert in 2016 Donruss Baseball

February 29, 2016

Panini America 2016 Donruss Baseball 1982 Insert1

Panini America’s iconic 2016 Donruss Baseball arrives on Wednesday in hobby shops across North America boasting the kind of nostalgia, fun, value and old-school charm that only more than 30 years of history can produce. (It also includes a few ruffled feathers compliments of The Famous San Diego Chicken . . . but we’ll get to that a little later.)

And perhaps no one insert in the product best summarizes all of those things quite like the 50-card 1982 chase, a set that combines compelling — and sometimes offbeat — photography, the classic 1982 Donruss Baseball design and a checklist filled with the best players of yesterday, today and tomorrow.

To help properly prepare you for Wednesday’s release, we showcase every card in the 1982 insert in the gallery that follows. Enjoy the sneak peek and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage of 2016 Donruss Baseball, including a can’t-miss “Making Of” video starring the legendary and aforementioned Famous San Diego Chicken.
