Topps - Episode One 3D (2000)

Image

This may well be the coolest set produced for Episode One. Topps has proven their ability to produce a high quality 3D card set in the past, and Episode One provides some incredible potential for 3D cards. This set of 46 cards covers a wide range of scenes from throughout the movie. Two multi-motion chase cards add to the power of the set. No cards were wasted in creating this set. There is no title card (something I miss actually) and no checklist card. The checklist is provided on each wrapper instead. The focus here is on images from the film that best display the unique power of 3D imagery.

The cards were packaged two to a pack with 36 packs in each box. Retail price on packs were around $3, which might seem a bit steep, but excellent collation meant that purchasing a box provided a strong likelihood of completing not only the common set of 46 cards (with a few left over singles) but both chase cards as well. Given the expense of producing 3D cards, this smaller set was relatively inexpensive for most collectors to complete.

There was a single promotional card issued for the set, P1, which shows Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon Jinn with lightsabers drawn. It's a great looking card, and available from a wide variety of sources, including the Feb/Mar. issue of NSU, Star Wars Galaxy Collector magazine, and Previews magazine.
