Former Italy and Inter Milan midfielder Bruno Bolchi, the player on the first Panini card printed in 1961, died on Tuesday at the age of 82, the sticker manufacturer said on Twitter.

Panini Group, an Italian company based in Modena, is famous worldwide for its player cards and World Cup sticker albums which have been released for every tournament since 1970.
