    1991 Topps Desert Shield Baseball High Grade Complete Set (792). Part of Topps' 40th Anniversary celebration in 1991 are these very special cards that were circulated for our brave sons and daughters in the United States military. The operation was dubbed "Desert Shield" which is what these limited edition cards are referred to. The cards parallel to the 1991 standard issue but display a special gold-foil "Desert Shield" emblem identifying them as one of a reported production of less than 7,000 of each card. The cards circulated in single card packs, an offer to buy a complete set was never presented by Topps. This means 792-card complete sets were very difficult to assemble and that remains true on the 25th Anniversary of this most patriotic issue. While rumors of cards ending up in hands of non-military personnel persist, this set comes to Heritage directly from a veteran of our armed forces. All of the great stars of the era are included. A total of 61 cards have been graded by PSA and there are many more worthy candidates. Includes: Graded - PSA GEM MT 10: 35 cards, #'s 22, 31, 34, 36, 38, 51, 52, 55, 60, 99, 106, 110, 150 Ripken Jr., 167, 168, 182, 194, 200 Strawberry, 217, 225 Johnson, 254, 276, 303, 322, 338, 339 Walker, 355, 392 Griffey JR.
