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!

Manning: Triumphs & Horrors Of The Gulf War Card Set: 50 cards.       $18.95 plus postage*

Manning: Triumphs & Horrors Of The Gulf War

Manning released a particularly poignant set of cards depicting the events of the Gulf War.  While not quite the tabloid, or sensationalism type of reporting, the cards did focus on events that weren't always at the forefront of the news, due to the negativity that would have followed such news.  The strife of the populace in the face of all the fighting wasn't something we read about nearly as much as the news of the military action.  "Collateral damage" inflicted on those not directly active in the fighting was just as real as targeted actions.  Thus, the 'horrors' as well as the 'triumphs' received attention in this unique 50 card set which should be mandatory reading.  Please note that some pictures may be disturbing to some individuals.
