2013 Topps Baseball Release Countdown #22

1991 Topps Desert Shield #22 Storm Davis

I don't think there's a better card in this set, save the Chipper Jones rookie. Had he gone by his birth name (George), it would have been just another card in this historic set. As it is, the name of the two-time World Series champion evokes memories of Operation Desert Storm and the commander of coalition forces during the first Gulf War, the late General Norman Schwarzkopf.

For a couple of good articles on this set, check here and here.
