1991 Topps Mickey Mantle

I know some will disagree, but I think Topps put out a pretty decent product for it's 40th anniversary. They included the player position, used team logos, had better photos, and returned to the horizontal action variations. Another cool thing Topps did was issue cards to the troops in Kuwait during operation Desert Shield. Unfortunately I could not figure out a way to recreate the foil stamp used on the Desert Shield cards for this one.


  1. You would have thought there would have been a few collectors in uniform over there who hoarded all the cards they could find and then had them shipped back home when their tour was done.

    Somebody has a basement full of boxes of the Desert Shield cards, probably.
