Default 1989 Topps Traded Tiffany

Are the Tiffany Topps Traded cards mixed in with the Traded sets (see below) or are they in their own set box?

They were in their own box, more elaborate, and sealed.

They were always called "Limited Edition" on the set box, and usually with gold foil wording on the box. "Tiffany" was just a nickname given to them as they were the "high end" version of the set. The yearly box colors for the limited set were:

1984 - red
1985 - blue
1986 - brown
1987 - purple
1988 - green
1989 - blue
1990 - red
1991 - blue

I've never owned a Topps Tiffany card. Always considered them as 'super-premium' cards. Does anyone remember if these were a special order thru a hobby shop or were they released in retail too?

I have a run of the base and traded sets (84-91) Still in sealed boxes. Never seen them. I think most boxes went to dealers and shops but some could be ordered from Topps through hobby publications. Fritsch used to sell them through his catalog.

I can't be sure but from my recollections back then, it was usually the bigger dealers who dealt directly with Topps who I would see have them. They would have like 10-100 cases of the regular product at a show and they had like one case of the Tiffanies.

The raw cards out from the set are more glossy so you can tell them apart, just like the Fleer Glossy's that came out of the tin sets they did.

I had a card shop in the late 80s. It was small, but we could get Tiffany's through our distributor. Regular Traded came in set form, and there were no Tiffanys in them.

Maybe I said that wrong, I was trying to say if someone opens a tiffany set and you see a raw card out there, how you tell the difference.

I think on the regular traded there are 2 asterisks on the bottom of the back, but they aren't there for tiffany.

Tiffany. The regular set is a white stock on back as well.

Yup, the only time I remember seeing them is at card shows and hobby mags. Aside from that, I wouldn't have known they even existed.
