    Great find - congrats!

    eBay links to completed auctions now default to a current listing that matches similar search terms. It is a stupid idea. There is a small hyperlink at the top that says “see original listing”. You will see it is clearly a Diffractor. DelBacon for the win! Always fun to find one cheap. Congrats.

    1998 Tek Collectors,

    Thank you to everyone who has picked up close to 1000 cards in the past couple of weeks.

    All of my remaining duplicate '98 Teks have been spoken for.

    In addition to the 98 Teks, I have a very large Pedro Martinez collection through 2004 when he left the Red Sox. I have never been tempted to pay extra for a pattern 45 Pedro card. I also see Pedro cards numbered something like 45/100 referred to as 1/1 cards. That's a joke to me. I also won't pay a premium for slabbed Pedro cards or Teks. I see slabbed 98 Teks with water spots, ink spots, refractor lines, shadowed portraits, blurred pattern numbers, and the classic: base cards labeled diffractors.
