    That is really great, all the color autos and you don't have the base or tidal? I'll post mine up in a week or so, I've got one coming from COMC and I'm watching an auction.

    All 6 base variations are along the top with the tidal top far right.

    He has no base or tidal auto's.

    Interesting, it seems Topps/Beckett left several collectors wondering what was real on the checklist. I checked cardboard connection as well, there's is a bit more vague but would still lead me to believe Cal had base autos. If you haven't seen them I will take your word, with everything else you have from the set I don't see how they would have gotten past you. Seems odd some players wouldn't have base, I mentioned earlier Biggio doesn't either, just tidal and colors...odd

    Yea I don't think anyone really knows what exactly is out there... lol.
    Tek never releases everything. Ripken has not had base auto's in any of the past 3 years only color's and inserts. A lot of players have some auto's but not base.... really no ryhme or reason. I have yet to see a 1/1 auto of Ripken this year(charcoal or print proofs). I'm sure they have to be out there but just funny I haven't seen any yet?!?

    Nobody really knows I don't think.... lol

    It's certainly been brought up before but the mystery leads the list of "most fun" and "most frustrating" categories.

    Every year of Tek since 2014 has done this with random players. Seems like star players don't get a base auto. , just the parallel autos. Troy Tulowitzki has no autographs lower than the disco diffractor /50 print run. Cargo is the same as Tulo, no base auto. but has a disco auto. /50 and on down in rarity. Galarraga too has no base auto., but has all the same autos. as the previous 2 listed. Eddie Butler has a base autograph with no serial #, then all the same ones on down that Tulo, Cargo and Galarraga have.

    Not a 100% complete rainbow, but better than I've done the past 2 years. I have 1 pattern still in my COMC queue and still looking for #3 Grass. I was trying to be patient on the easier patterns but man they dried up FAST. Same with the Asia Sky auto, tried to wait the price out but after 2 or 3 copies nothing else ever popped up.

    I missed out on the '14 Galactic Auto after bowing out at $600, so you can imagine my reaction when this year's graded BGS 10 was listed with BIN $225. God bless the group breakers. So I have both the auto & non-auto Galactic for 2016.

    That's a good looking run. You sure are right, things dried up fast. Still love this product though, something about it, I can't get enough, as frustrating as it can be just love it. I haven't heard much for 2017, I know it's a late in year release but I hope Topps keeps it going.

    Some of you guys have put together really nice runs of 2016 tek. Still working on mine and probably will be for a long time. I did get the grass pattern off COMC for about $3.00, which felt like a major score.

    Great looking trio! It's hard to tell in the pic is the major difference between the black rainbow and the black galactic just the star-ish refractor pattern? I'm missing the black rainbow biggio
