As was the whole industry, Topps was in a transitional year. Several long time inserts sets wrapped up in 1991, and the company started to use more white card stock. They also started looking to their past more. Maybe turning 40 made them nostalgic for their youth. In later years, Topps will have a lot of product based on old designs (think Heritage). It all started here.
