Description

1998 UD3 ("Upper Deck Cubed") consists of 270 cards. The set is structured similar to Flair Showcase with the same 90 cards repeated on three different cards, with three different designs, each produced in three different levels. This would be the second, and last, year for the UD3 brand.

Distribution

24 packs per box, three cards per pack (MSRP: $3.99). Hobby exclusive.

Base Set

The UD3 base set is fractured so that the same 90-card checklist is repeated across three "Technology" subsets: Light F/X (i.e. etched foil, cards #1-90), Embossed (cards #91-180), and Rainbow (cards #181-270). For example, card #1 in the Light F/X subset is also card #91 in the Embossed subset and #181 in Rainbow, and card #50 in Light F/X is cards #140 and #230 in Embossed and Rainbow, respectively. In addition, each 90-card subset is further subdivided into three 30-card subsets with their own unique designs that are also repeated in the three Technology subsets: Future Impact, Power Corps, and The Establishment.

Further confusingly, each card is sequentially-numbered three times on the reverse: Technology, Set, and Subset. For example, Vladimir Guerrero's Future Impact-Embossed card is sequentially-numbered as: "TECHNOLOGY:EM26 SET:116 SUBSET:F156" This means it is the 26th card in the Embossed subset, the 156th card in the Future Impact subset, and the 116th card in the overall set -- which is how we have numbered our checklist below.
