Several companies previously known for producing baseball trading cards saw the historic events unfolding in 1991, soon to be known as "The Gulf War," as an opportunity to document the action via their own unique media. Thus were born the Desert Storm Cards and one of the first sets to appear was from Topps, with three series of cards.

Although the cards from Topps were the only ones to include stickers, each competing manufacturer's set displays a unique quality.  Check out the way each company chooses to describe the action and decides upon what picture is worthy. Eventually, you'll want to collect and enjoy them all!

The AMA Group released a colorful trading cards set during this period, dedicating it to the efforts here and abroad that appeared in support of the troops.  Yellow ribbons began to appear of trees, signposts, flagpoles and also as well as on pieces of jewelry.  This 60 card set included bios on some of the soldiers and behind the scenes personnel.
