Description

As part of the launch of the new Stadium Club brand, Topps created a collector's club of the same name. This 50-card multi-sport set was sent to charter members in the Topps Stadium Club. The sports represented in the set are baseball (1-32), football (33-41), and hockey (42-50). The cards have the same design as the 1991 Stadium Club Baseball base set, but with the words "Charter Member" printed in gold foil lettering immediately below the stripes. The back design features a newspaper-like masthead (The Stadium Club Herald) complete with a headline announcing a major event in the player's season with copy below providing more information about the event. The cards are unnumbered and arranged below alphabetically within sports.

Topps apparently made two printings of this set, which are most easily identifiable by the small asterisks on the bottom left of the card backs. The first printing cards have one asterisk, the second printing cards have two.

In addition to the 50-card set, Charter Member sets also included a baseball card-sized Nolan Ryan bronze ingot, a key chain, and a personalized membership card. Some of the early ignots were produced in a size slightly larger than 2 1/2" X 3 1/2". It is believed that very early members of the Stadium Club received this over-sized Ryan Ingot. A third version of the Ryan ingot is known to exist: this one has a 24K logo on it. It is believed that the 24K version may have been sold exclusively on the Home Shopping Network.
