After a 14 year hiatus, Topps revisits the Tek line. 2014 Topps High Tek brings back the same multi-pattern concept but this time with the addition of signatures and proofs. Parallel runs exist for any one player in the set with two separate design batches, one for AL players and another for NL players. When this product came out, it was opened extensively by the breaker community. The format has changed but the excitement remains the same. Each box yields 1 pack with 8 cards and 1 autograph.
I pursued the Frank Thomas 29-parallel rainbow for this run quite heavily when it first came out. New additions to my run are seldom and hard to find since the remaining five cards are all 1/1s. Building runs this extensive takes time, which is why I’m writing about this now and not in 2014 when this product was released. What’s seen here is a visual progress list. While I’m still in search of the remaining needed cards, given their scarcity, I’m happy with my progress. If you know of the whereabouts of any of the remaining needs, and are willing to help me, please contact me.
