Brand: Topps Dimension III
Card number: 48
Over the years, various card companies have tried to pull off a 3D-type set. Sometimes it's more multiple images (ala SportFlix) while other times companies actually go for a true 3D effect. The Topps Dimension III set is all about trying to achieve the 3D look - and while it was a noble effort I don't think it worked overly well. Instead, the front of the cards look nothing but blurry to me - but then again, I was never good at seeing the hidden images in the old Magic Eye books (which would have been released about the same time as the Dimension III set now that I think about it).
Unfortunately, the back of the card is just as ugly as the front, but without any 3D "technology." In fact, the back is a hodgepodge of ugly fonts, ugly colors, and ugly shapes. There's probably a reason why this set was never extended into a long run like Stadium Club or even Opening Day. Ick.
