I don't really blame Topps. At the time (and really still to this day) there was a lot of pressure from collectors to include the hot prospects. This meant that some pretty popular players had to be excluded.

    Taking into consideration careers and popularity with collectors, just think of how valuable unopened product would be in this scenario...

    Remove the following 12 players:

    AJ Hinch
    Derek Bell
    Richard Hidalgo
    Brad Fullmer
    Quinton McCracken
    Mark Kotsay
    Todd Dunwoody
    Jeff King
    Tony Clark
    Jeromy Burnitz
    Ellis Burks
    Javy Lopez

    (There are quite a few young guys that would be easy to cut in retrospect, but would have been awfully hard to cut at the time - Erstad, Grieve, Cruz Jr, TWalker, TLee, OHernandez, for example)

    Add in the following 12 players:

    Mariano Rivera
    Rickey Henderson
    Ryne Sandberg
    Jose Canseco
    Hideo Nomo
    Wade Boggs
    David Ortiz
    Will Clark
    Roy Halladay
    Lance Berkman
    John Smoltz
    Fred McGriff
    Just wanted to repost this (from earlier in the thread) to show how insane the 1998 product could have been.

    It would be fun to keep track of how many from the original checklist end up making the HOF, although it would have been even more interesting if steroids weren't part of the equation.

    I can only imagine the type of mail griffeyfan24 gets. I have even criticized his prices but he sells his cards at 5 million times their worth. I'm selling mine for only double so it's okay :LOL:
    Ha, true that.There's a whole thread "dedicated" to griffeyfan24 on Blowout that I stumbled across the other day.

    I don't put too much credence into BIN's. Auctions give a truer sense of market value IMO. With that said, Jeter refractors do go for a very large percentage of their diffractor counterparts compared to other players in the set.

    We will have our new Topps Tek....in about 8 or 9 more years when 2005 Studio Portraits, 2005 Polo Grounds, 2005 Sportcasters, 2004 Leaf Exhibits take it's place. Player collectors may have learned their lesson and started on each of those already! Although, they are numbered so there won't be any "diffractor" mystique!

    Not trading 98 TEKs for the 2012 Bowman Platinum Purple Refractors. I will trade dupes I have in 2012 products like Topps Chrome, Bowman Chrome, and Bowman Platinum for Topps 2012 Orange Border Refractors (147 of 220 complete) and Bowman Platinum Purple Border refractors (85 of 100 complete). I was pleased to pick up another Bonds Focus 2000 Mania numbered to 300 for $ 5 today so no more Bonds cards needed for my mania sets. 5 more cards to go to complete two Fleer Focus 2000 Masterpiece Mania sets

    and YES I would trade 1998 Topps TEK cards if anyone has any of these

    Focus 2000 Masterpiece Mania Set # 4 (each #d to 300) Want List
    (1 card to go out of 250 for complete set)
    232(Nick Johnson) <<<<==== Last one for mania set

    Focus 2000 Masterpiece Mania Set # 5 (each #d to 300) Want List
    (4 cards to go out of 250 for complete set)
    1(Garciaparra), 232(Nick Johnson), 236(W Mo Pena), 247(E Munson)

    The Bench but like pretty much everywhere else Bonds is not in high demand. I picked up the two Fleer Focus 2000 Masterpiece manias numbered to 300 for my Mania sets that you had been holding out for $30 in trade value each for $ 5 and $ 6, respectively in past week. That will most likely be the last Bonds card I will ever be looking for. But still I hope that you can wrap up your third 98 TEK Bonds set soon. I wish you good luck and happy hunting.
