    Tentative autograph subjects list has been out there for awhile now. Base card checklist is what everyone really wants to know, and what the higher #d variations come out at. If there are 100 subjects, and 12 design variations (1200 base cards), and only 1 #/d parallel per pack(box), I can't see how they could be #d more than 25 or so max.

    Unless I'm mistaken, of the previous releases '98 is the most "collected" or has the largest cult following and popularity goes down slightly for '99 and drops at 2000. On some level Topps has to have a fatter finger on the pulse of what collectors (ie customers) want. Should have been far more variations and far fewer parallels. Thumbs up their a$$e$. I'll wait for a checklist and live cards to see how far into the set building game I will or won't get but my excitement has waned

    What really caught my attention was the buybacks of older Tek. Will there really be buybacks of 1998 Tek Diffractors? If so, how did they acquire them? Will they be specially stamped (or something?) Will an on-card auto from any of these years look decent?

    I really hope they don't stamp the diffractors and I don't like the look of signed 98 teks.

    I'm still confused about how the #d parallels work for this set. 100 base cards and 12 patterns for each one, I get that. But does that mean for Gold diffractors (#d not announced yet) there will be 12 patterns as well? That math on that just doesn't make a lot of sense seeing as how there will only be 1 parallel per box:


    PARALLEL CARDS - 1 per box: Gold Diffractor #'d, Ice Diffractor #'d, Disco Diffractor #'d, Clouds Diffractor #'d, Black & White Image #/15, Red Storm Diffractor #/10, Blue Dots Diffractor #/5, Charcoal Galactic Diffractor 1/1, Printing Proofs 1/1

    So lets say lowest scenario, the 4 parallels where the print run is not published are all #/d 15. That would be 91 cards, discounting plates. 91 * 1200 base cards = 109,200 #d parallel cards. And at only 1 per pack(box), that means 9,100 12-box cases produced. This seems unlikely.
