In the release of Donruss Classics, Donruss has produced the first ever memorabilia and cut signature card of legendary coach, Knute Rockne. Kenneth Rockne was elected to the inaugural class of the College Football Hall of Fame and is considered the inventor of the forward pass.
Nicknamed Knute, Rockne arrived in South Bend and lead Notre Dame to six National Championships. He currently holds the record for the greatest winning percentage among head coaches. At the age of just 43, the coaching legend was killed in a plane crash.
His appearance in Donruss Classics is only his third appearance on a trading card since 1955.
