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!

Dart Flipcards: Gulf War Fact Cards

Display Of Dart Flipcards Desert Storm - Gulf War Fact Cards Set
Dart Flipcards entered the Gulf War trading cards market with one of the more unique approaches to reporting the action in Iraq and Kuwait in 1991. Using a format that was visually very similar to newspaper headline stories, Dart Flipcards reports each card topic as if it was in fact, just that: a news event.  While it's certainly true that there were endless incidents throughout the Gulf War that each warranted headlines, Dart Flipcarts seized that viewpoint and used it for the entire set.  The merging of a trading card medium with a newspaper, even a tabloid format at times, gives this particular card set it's unique flavor. Dramatic front pictures and black-on-white newspaper print on the back: 100 cards.
