1995

After the excellent set designs of 1994, I found most of 1995's sets lacking- I got less of them new than I did in 1994. More sets than ever before were issued in 1995, some of them I thought were excellent, but didn't return, like Maxx Crown Chrome and Images.
Maxx Crown Chrome is one of the biggest blunders in card history, though- Maxx forgot to number them! Luckily, the cards were essentially paralells of the Premier Plus set, with the same numbers.

Fleer, Classic, Pinnacle and Upper Deck both made their NASCAR debuts. I've never been a big fan of UD, but when they get it right, they really get it right- 3 of their sets are among my top 10 all time favorites. Pinnacle was an interesting company, they ushered in a lot of innovations. Fleer was my favorite basketball card company, but their NASCAR efforts were limited and not all that great. (They actually came out before I got into NBA though). Classic actually got the NASCAR license, which is surprising- normally they produced unlicensed cards.

With the exception of Select, which I loved when new and got most of then, and Maxx Medallion, which I bought a box of in the 2000s, roughly 95% of the other cards in this album all came from a full 5000 count box I purchased around 2000.
