    The 2014 Topps (High) Tek Thread

    This stuff is coming out soon and I for one am very excited as a breaker. The previews I've seen look great, and I'm pumped because I foresee a product where almost every card, base and better, will be sellable. I don't think the old school Tek fans will be able to resist, and the player collectors either.

    Ok, lol, discuss...

    When's the street date? I'm assuming we don't have a checklist yet and I'm torn between saving up for this or for some nice all star relics from Topps Update since it looks good for Brewers.

    Agreed , but because it will be broken heavily it won't be the "hidden/lost" thing that 1998 Tek was, where people didn't go all out from the start. So the cards are going to be available and available quickly. I see two scenarios:

    1. Prices for the singles stay high as people will pay whatever to get it completed fast

    2. Prices won't hold on singles because the buyers will wait it out

    Also I haven't seen the base CL yet , 90s guys IMO are going to like this more than the people who collect current players. So it depends on who is in the set to drive interest.

    This set up is more like 99 Tek/00 Tek , which are collected , but don't have the same 1998 Tek feelings. It'll be interesting to see.

    I hope you breakers do well, I'm just not sure how the market will approach this version

    I think if somebody commented in the 90's Topps Tek threads that the issue should have included "Disco Diffractors" they would get laughed out of here. However, apparently somebody at Topps thought it was a good idea. Maybe if Topps used different/new photos of the older players instead of recycling the same photos over and over and over they might draw more interest from the 90's player collectors like me...

    D&A and Blowout are now listing this as an 11/26 release. Ugh. CBC still says 11/05.

    I saw that boxes will be one 8 card pack. Boxes are in the $60+ range? Seems like it might tank if there is no Tanaka, DeGrom or Abreu. Looking at about $8 a card on the wholesale level. Who's gonna pay that for the likes of Sonny Gray and Jon Singleton?
