he 1991 Topps Desert Shield set was produced by Topps exclusively for military personnel deployed to fight the Gulf War in the Middle East. Each service member was to receive a 15-card pack. The set is identical to the 1991 Topps baseball but for the gold foil Desert Shield emblem (a palm tree and shield) on the front player section of the cards. Topps rushed the production and shipment of the cards and didn’t have the time to create new designs. Several boxes didn’t reach their Middle East destination as they were left in military bases in the United States. Three decades after the Gulf War, these cards are still sought after by collectors. Presented here is a Chipper Jones autographed rookie, with the autograph receiving a BGS 10 grade.
