It looks like the good people at Topps® spared no expense getting a fresh picture of some dirty Iraqi about to launch a deadly Scud Missile™ at the virtuous Coalition for Peace.

These days we have memes, back then all we had was the joke ‘Sure Could Use Directions’ to keep us going. It’s been a wild ride.

Stickers for both of those notorious bastions of Liberty, Morocco and Egypt!

Nice quality control, Topps. Looks like someone needs to go back in time to 1991 to interrogate some employees, because some dumb motherfucker (probably an Iraqi) on the assembly line must think that Morocco and/ or Egypt stickers just grow on the motherfucking Topps Bubblegum Trees!! Jesus tap-dancin' Christ, I hope someone got fired for that.

On the other hand, I got two stickers and that is awesome!!!

You younger folks may not remember this, but that picture of Lt. General Kelly kickstarted puberty for a large chunk of the world's non-sports-card enthusiasts coming of age in 1991.
Anyone born in late 1991/ early 1992 from an unplanned teenage pregnancy owes their life to either that card, of the original run of the TV show Cop Rock.

Well, you don't understand how the business of trading cards works. You get a lot of pictures sometimes, and you just have to make sense of them all. Even if it doesn't make sense. That guy isn't a tank. It's complicated.
