I can remember when 1995 UC3 was released. I was floored by the 3D design; I thought it was so cool. Hideo Nomo captured collectors that year as he was the big rookie. We all bought as much of his cards as we could find. eBay had just been invented and hadn’t yet made it into the mainstream so collectors had to depend on shop and show inventory, which was competitive. Prices were high but the chase for Nomo stuff was hot. 1995 UC3 features an excellent design and modest selection of insert sets, and it’s a fun and very reasonable set to build.
