    1991 Topps Desert Shield Complete Set (792). NOTE: Please red the list below as it has three card # corrections from the print version. Any quantity has not changed.

    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 29th Anniversary of this most patriotic issue. A total of 193 cards have been professionally graded by PSA. Includes: Graded - PSA MINT 9: 58 cards, #'s 11, 50, 68, 76, 78, 83, 94, 108, 110, 141, 142, 143, 179, 183, 188, 202, 211, 217, 223, 247, 252, 260, 261, 303, 311, 318, 322, 344, 351, 364, 373, 406, 408, 421, 435, 436, 441, 455, 510, 514, 516, 529, 533, 552, 571, 579, 620, 627, 646, 676, 714, 720, 734, 751, 760, 763, 773, 791; PSA NM-MT+ 8.5: 7 cards, #'s 155, 190, 235, 346, 385, 788, 789; PSA NM-MT 8: 123 cards, #'s 1 Ryan, 6 Ryan RB, 14, 15, 17, 32, 35, 54, 63, 79 Thomas, 82 Glavine, 95 Molitor, 100 Mattingly, 105, 115, 120, 125, 130 O.

    Just wanted to let you know how pleased I am regarding the sale of my hockey jersey. You were great to work with, you answered all my phone calls and e-mails in a prompt manner, and you did a great job marketing the jersey.
