-The Tiffany product, as in your link, is a different set from the regular 1991 Topps issue. The Tiffany versions were not inserts, but a different set entirely only available in set form. I think they were printed overseas.

The Tiffany will have a glossy look on both sides of the card. Sometimes the front gloss is hard to differentiate, but for most Topps products the back is the easy giveaway. Nothing else is different between the regular release and the Tiffany sets except the gloss.

For the 1991 product (the final year they made Tiffany sets), it is believed (though not confirmed officially by Topps) that only 5,000 sets were produced. I think the most they produced of Tiffany was '87 by a decent margin.

Hope that helps. If the back of the card doesn't just pop out at you when you glance at it, it isn't a Tiffany release.

lobo_hacker, wishing he had ten or so of those

I'd be stunned if your future wife's grandfather had 10 Tiffany Chippers lying around. They are most likely regular Topps.

I suppose it's possible, just unlikely.

If you post a scan of the back we can probably tell you for sure.
