1991 Topps Tiffany & Traded Tiffany Set

Print Run: 4,000

The 1991 Topps Tiffany and Topps Traded Tiffany were available to hobby dealers in cases with 6 sets in each case.  The 792 card set and the traded set were shipped in separate cases.  

The set box continued to use premium cardboard.  The design stayed the same with a solid dark blue color, with a unique gold foil border design, and the classic gold foil seal with the words, “CONTAINS ONE COMPLETE SET” printed in black ink.  On the bottom of the 792 card set box is a gold foil sticker that contains the set number. Both sets came shrink wrapped with “Topps” printed all over it.  It is believed that this set has the lowest print run of all the Tiffany sets at 4,000 printed.

1991 Topps Tiffany -vs- Base  Cards

The regular Tiffany cards differentiated from the base Topps by being printed on white card stock with a high-gloss coating.  Many sellers on eBay and other sites, will list their regular cards as Tiffany cards.  The easiest way to determine a Tiffany card from a regular issued base card, for the 792 card set, is to look at the back of the card.  The Tiffany card backs will be a bright pink border and a clean white background, while the regular issued cards will appear to be a pink-gray border and gray background.  It is also important to note that many sellers will attempt to brighten the regular cards to give the appearance of a Tiffany background.  With current printing technology some sellers have now created their own fake reprint Tiffany cards, which can make it impossible to tell the difference between a real Tiffany card and fake by simply looking at the back.  Therefore, once you have the card in hand you will want to check the thickness and gloss of the card by comparing it with another Tiffany card of the same year.  

1991 Topps Tiffany Traded -vs- Base Traded Set or Wax Pack Cards

Topps Traded Tiffany cards and regular issued Topps Traded cards are extremely difficult to tell apart.  To make things more difficult, Topps issued Traded cards in both sets and wax packs.  The regular Traded cards that came in sets were printed on the same white card stock as Tiffany Cards.  The only way to tell the difference between a Tiffany Traded and a Traded set issued card is by the gloss on the front of the Tiffany.  Sometimes, the gloss on the Tiffany cards can sometimes turn the front border to a white-yellowish tint, but not always.  Both card backs will have the same background.    You can identify the wax pack issued Traded cards by looking at the back.  On the back of set issued Traded cards will be printed on the same gray card stock that the regular 792 Topps cards are printed on.  Another indicator of the wax pack issued Traded cards is that there is only one * located on the back before the ©.  Traded Tiffany and set issued Traded have ** on the back before the ©.  Since it is extremely difficult to distinguish the difference between the Tiffany Traded and the set Traded by looking at a photo, once you have the card in hand you will want to compare the thickness and gloss of the card by comparing it to a Traded Tiffany card of the same year.  If you compare it to a regular Traded card, then you should be able to notice the difference on the front with the Tiffany cards having a glossy finish and the regular Traded do not.

Warning: There are no visible markings or difference between Tiffany Traded and Traded Set issued cards that can be seen in pictures.
