Description

1991 Topps is a 792-card set -- the tenth consecutive year the annual Topps flagship clocked-in at 792 cards. Notable for being its 40th Anniversary, 1991 Topps is renowned excellent photography and design. Subsets include Record Breakers, All-Stars, Draft Picks, and Future Stars. The only notable rookie is of Chipper Jones, the first pick in the MLB Draft the previous year.

Topps began transitioning away from wax paper wrappers in favor of plastic "poly" packs -- similar to those used in 1991 Stadium Club. "Wax" packs exist in both wax paper and poly plastic.

This would also be the final year Topps would be printed on gray back cardstock.

An estimated 4-5 million copies of each card were printed.

40th Anniversary Promotion

In 1991 Topps celebrated 40th anniversary in the baseball card business with a sweepstakes and instant win game. One copy of each Topps base set (1951-1990 inclusive) were randomly inserted into packs. According to an newspaper interview with Topps spokesman Dennis Liss, buy-back cards with a value of less than $50 were inserted into packs, while cards worth more than $50 and issued before 1957 would be redemptions. Based on data from collectors who opened large quantities of 1991 Topps packs, the buy-backs and redemption coupons were seeded into packs at the "case hit" level. Topps advertised that they spent $1 million on prior-year cards for this promotion.

The contest consisted of:

  • One contest card was seeded in every pack. Collectors could fill out the card with their name and address for a chance to win one of 41 different prizes. The first-place prize was every Topps complete set from 1952 to 1991. The forty second-place prizes was one Topps complete set from a random year.
  • Contest cards, which were seeded at one in every 1000 packs, contained an X were "instant winners" and could be redeemed for a vintage buy-back card.

    Parallels

    O-Pee-Chee

    Roberto-Alomar.jpg?id=4b399eb1-ea50-43b2-9282-70557aeb64be&size=original&side=front&.jpg Roberto-Alomar.jpg?id=4b399eb1-ea50-43b2-9282-70557aeb64be&size=original&side=back&.jpg

    The 1991 O-Pee-Chee baseball set was produced for the Canadian market and for the second consecutive year it was a full 792-card parallel of the Topps base set. The only distinctions between the Topps and OPC sets are the bilingual text and the O-Pee-Chee copyright on the backs. (The fronts of the OPC cards even feature the Topps 40th anniversary logo.) The cards were also printed on a lighter, brighter, cardstock -- similar to the Tiffanys.

    Because OPC was issued months after the Topps set, traded players were able to have their new teams and dates of trade notated on their card.

    As with Topps, O-Pee-Chee threw a contest of their own. 1500 lucky collectors could win a 1990 O-Pee-Chee factory set. (Wow!)

    Desert Shield

    Storm-Davis.jpg?id=a8d691f0-fa15-4840-9622-e1c51149fe6c&size=original&side=front&.jpg Storm-Davis.jpg?id=a8d691f0-fa15-4840-9622-e1c51149fe6c&size=original&side=back&.jpg

    1991 Topps Desert Shield is a 792-card parallel of the Topps set. Produced as a "thank you" to American troops serving in the Gulf War, this special run was supposed to be sent to the Middle East (in reality, a large amount of the print run never made it past an Air Force base in South Carolina). Cards were distributed in 15-card packs that look and feel like an ordinary 1991 Topps wax pack and each service member was entitled to one pack. All cards have a special "Desert Shield" gold-foil logo stamped in the upper-left corner.

    Collectors should be advised that Desert Shield cards are very easy to counterfeit. Unopened Desert Shield wax packs are extremely rare and should only be purchased from a reliable source. Under close inspection, one can spot a fake by the orientation of the palm tree in the foil stamp. The bottom left tip of the tree should point between the E and R in OPERATION. If it doesn't, the stamp/card is most likely fake. In addition, the foil stamp should be crisp. The stamp is fuzzy on some fakes.

    Approximately 6313 copies of each Desert Shield card were produced.

    Tiffany

    Mark-McGwire.jpg?id=8018e90f-c3a0-4c89-b0dd-bddf85fa5f97&size=original&side=front&.jpg Mark-McGwire.jpg?id=8018e90f-c3a0-4c89-b0dd-bddf85fa5f97&size=original&side=back&.jpg

    1991 was the eighth, and final, year Topps would produce a Tiffany factory set. Like with all previous Tiffany sets, each card was printed on white cardstock and has a glossy coating.

    Of all the Tiffany sets, it is believed that the 1991 set is the scarcest.

    Micro

    Sammy-Sosa.jpg?id=636b5148-87fc-4cda-89c8-7ec97f2fa083&size=original&side=front&.jpg Sammy-Sosa.jpg?id=636b5148-87fc-4cda-89c8-7ec97f2fa083&size=original&side=back&.jpg

    In 1991, Topps debuted Topps Micro a parallel set. Micro was sold exclusively in factory set form and primarily to mass market retail outlets. Each card measures 1" X 1 3/8".

    Glow Backs

    The "Glow Backs" are a variation that was not discovered until decades after 1991 Topps' release. When exposed to a black light, the pink and navy blue ink on the backs of some cards appear to give off a magenta and cobalt blue "glow."

    It's unclear if all 792 cards are available as Glow Backs.

    Dark Backs

    About a third of the base set can be found with a noticeably darker 40th Anniversary logo.

    For the eighth, and final, year, each rack pack contained one Glossy All-Star. As with the previous versions of this insert, the checklist consists of the starting lineups of the previous year's All-Star Game. The design is also identical, but with the addition of a 40th Anniversary logo.

    One card from this 33-card set was inserted into each 100-card jumbo pack. The design identical to the previous year's set, but with a 40th Anniversary logo on the front. As with the Glossy All-Stars (see above), this would be the final year for the Glossy Rookies.

    For the final time, Topps printed cards on the bottom of their wax pack boxes. There are four different boxes, each with four cards with the checklist on the side. These cards have yellow borders rather than the white borders of the regular issue cards, and they have different photos of the players. The backs are printed in pink and blue on gray cardboard stock and feature outstanding achievements of the players.

    The same 16 cards that were printed on the bottom of Topps wax boxes were also printed on O-Pee-Chee boxes, as well. Just like the with base set, the only differentiation between the Topps and OPC Box Bottoms are the French text on the OPC cards.
