Nope, it's not. The iconic late 80's product is back.
Well, it's design at least.
Panini Instant, which is the Topps Now for Panini, recently released a Rated Rookie set for it's line incorporating that blue/purple/black colors we have come to know and sometimes love.
I know for some of us, we at least appreciate it.
So with that card in mind and seeing that Panini made two of my favorite newer Giants in that design, I had to have 'em.
I didn't bother taking a picture of the card backs as they are as bland as can be. They both are just yellow and say 1 of 280.
So at least with this version of '89 Donruss there is a limit on each card and how many are made of them. Unlike, the '89 version where someone could fill a landfill full of just them.
Panini has done this with their year end rookies for Panini Instant for the past few years in bringing back a classic design. Last year they used '89 Score. I think Panini should do what Topps does with Heritage and maybe using some of those designs and bringing them back to life in a product instead of an occasional pop in one.
What classic Donruss/Score/Pinnacle design would you like to see involved if that was to happen?
