1995 Topps Dimension III pack

Contents

Description

Released by Topps in October 1995, this "three-dimensional" lenticular set consists of 59 cards. "D3," as it has come to be known, was not well received by The Hobby and is considered one of Topps' biggest flops of the era.

Originally timed to coincide with the 1995 All-Star Game and buttressed by a massive (by Topps standards) marketing campaign that included a two-full-page advertisement in Beckett Baseball Card Monthly, D3 suffered from delays, a high price tag ($5 for a five-card Hobby pack), the lack of any rookies and few inserts, and the release by Pinnacle Brands of a similar (and about $2/pack cheaper) product, UC3.

A second series of D3 baseball and a football set were both planned for early '96, but both were canceled soon after the release of this product.

Distribution

Hobby: 24 packs per box, five cards per pack. $5 MSRP

Promos

These cards were included in dealer sell-sheets and distributed to The Hobby media. A third D3 promo of Detroit Lions kick returner Glyn Milburn exists; however Topps never made a D3 football set.

Inserts

Zone

None of the players in this set appear in the base set. It is assumed that these six would have been included in the Series Two base set, and six players from the Series One base set would have been in the Series Two Zone set.
