Desert Storm Cards:
Although we Americans remain strongly split in our beliefs about whether or not our military belonged in Iraq after the Twin Towers fell, most of us felt it was the right thing to do to help Kuwait in it's battle against Saddam Hussein's invasion way back in 1991.
Several companies previously known for producing baseball trading cards saw this historic event as an opportunity to document the action via their own unique media.

Pro Set and several other sports cards producers soon followed but Topps provided the most interesting and graphic series of cards as well as sticker sets complementing each issue.
