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!
DSI entered the Gulf War trading cards arena with one of the prettiest set of cards. They were the only ones that we know of who used a full bleed, high-gloss picture on every one of the cards. Printed on white stock, the descriptive text on the back was unusually detailed. Although the cards were sometimes advertised as 'laminated,' we think that was just a reference to the glossy finish, unlike many of the other issues out there during this time. This 50 card set is one of the most attractive, visually as well as informative and well worth adding to any collection of this period.
