The Elvis Collection - Series Three
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. Extreme thanks to Ray Tucker for the 
original list, and to Steve Kitsberg, Dave Christensen, Keith Nicholson, and Anders 
Johan Pedersen for updates!

Box: 36 packs of 12 cards.
Common sets: approx. 1.97 per box if collation were perfect.
