Prince and Morrissey ROOKIE CARDS? I love 1991 Pro Set Musicards!

Back in the very early 90’s, an upstart sports card company was ruling the hobby. Pro Set Trading Cards Inc. started producing football cards in 1989 but by 1991, they were not only doing football, hockey, soccer and racing cards, they were also cranking out the greatest music cards of all time: MusiCards and Yo! MTV Raps.

These cards were awesome then and they’re even more awesome now. I remember buying these up trying to get the George Michael, MC Hammer and Faith No More cards when I was a kid. Some of the other artists that you can find in these sets are Iron Maiden, Morrissey, Prince ( UK set only), Michael Jackson ( UK set only), AC/DC, John Lennon, Stevie Wonder, Madonna, Hall & Oates, The Doors, Slick Rick, Digital Underground, De La Soul, Bell Biv Devoe, Janet Jackson, Public Enemy and The Clash! Check out some of them here:

Luckily these boxes can be found today for about $15 (a little more for the UK versions) and are well worth the fun and nostalgia that come with them. The best part is that a card was “accidentally” released featuring a member of the band ‘Dread Zepplin’ with his dick hanging out of his bikini!! Though not rare by any means, it’s a great card that was easily corrected by a very small amount of airbrushing!
