The '91 Set was the first to be printed by Megacards in partnership with The Sporting News. The set consists of 330 cards released in 3 printings.

1st printing (Very Rare)

Cards 1-67 were labeled "HALL OF FAME" in the top right front corner. This printing was missing the MLB logo in the upper right corner on the back. Cards 68-330 of the 1st and 2nd printings were identical.

2nd Printing (Rare)

The 2nd printing also was missing the MLB logo in the upper right corner on the back from all cards, but the first 67 cards were labeled "HOF(+induction year)" in the top right front corner. This is assumed to be a design change to include the HOF induction year.

3rd Printing (Common)

The 3rd printing (and the most common) finally included the MLB logo on all 330 cards while the first 67 cards were again labeled "HOF(+induction year)" in the top right corner - the same as the 2nd printing. This is the set most commonly found.

The photos below show the differences (front & back) between the 3 printings. A complete checklist (including average retail) for all three printings is available under "Checklists" in the right hand column.

Special subsets include Hall Of Fame (1-67), 1927 Yankees (100-125), 75 Years Ago World Champs (135-150), 75 Years Ago League Leader (151-164), Great Stories (165-176), Unassisted Triple Play (200-208), Trivia (225-229), All Time Leader (250-277), Most Valuable Player (300-317), and a Charles Martin Conlon Special Card (327). 

A true Conlon baseball card collector would want all three sets. It is estimated that the 2nd printing represents only 10% of all cards in circulation. The 1st printing would be even more rare. Note: To my knowledge, however, official print run totals on these three sets are not known. These estimates are claimed by other collectors.
