The Elvis Collection - Series One The River Group - 1992
Notes: The three series of the 1992 River Group Elvis Collection together form a 660-card set, but each of the three series is skip-numbered within the 1-to-660 range. Relatively fewer copies of the third series were distributed, making that set the difficult part of collecting all 660 or the "Top Ten Hits" inserts. The first two series were also distributed together in Jumbo packs. Thanks much to Ray Tucker, Donald Green, Steve Kitsberg, Marty Maerten, Dave Christensen, Keith Nicholson, and Anders Johan Pedersen for updates!
