The 1990 Topps George Bush card remains one of the most valuable post-1980 trading cards, mainly due to its scarcity. It was originally believed that 100 of these specially-made cards were issued, all delivered in a 3-ring binder to President Bush at The White House. While 100 of these cards were gifted to President Bush, it turns out that other examples of this card have escaped Topps over the years. In addition, after further research, it turns out there are two different versions of this card. One version, the version that was gifted to President Bush, was manufactured with a thick coating along the surface of the card. Most of the examples that have reached the hobby, including those graded by all major third party grading services, were made without the coating and look exactly like most regular-issue 1990 Topps cards.
