    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 coming up on the 30th Anniversary of this most patriotic issue. All of the great stars of the era are included. A total of 25 cards have been graded by PSA and there are many more worthy candidates. Includes: Graded - PSA GEM 10: 3 cards, #'s 393 Fisk AS, 545 Murphy, 575 Yount; PSA MINT 9: 16 cards, #'s 6 Ryan RB, 68 Sheffield, 79 Thomas, 82 Glavine, 95 Molitor, 100 Mattingly, 130 Smith, 224 Gonzalez, 225 Johnson, 300 Puckett, 333 Jones, 401 Bonds AS, 450 Boggs, 500 Clark, 570 Bonds, 740 Sandberg; PSA NM-MT+ 8.5: 2 cards, #'s 35 Maddux, 75 Morris; PSA NM-MT 8: 2 cards, #'s 150 Ripken Jr., 670 Henderson; PSA NM 7: 1 card, #790 Griffey Jr.; PSA EX-MT 6: 1 card, #392 Griffey Jr. AS; Ungraded - #'s 1 Ryan (EX/MT), 270 McGwire (NM), 398 Sandberg AS (EX/MT), 414 Sosa (NM), 530 Clemens (NM), 540 Brett (NM), 565 Biggio (NM).
