    Has any one else completed the 14 Gwynn set? Just wondering because the shatter stripe only two have surfaced on eBay and one blue.

    I have a feeling individual player collectors who haven't already started their player(s) in this set are gonna experience a nightmare if they try to finish their sets as time goes on. I've bought every auto / non auto blue of my guys that have surfaced - and the rarer versions (Shatter Stripe and Zig Zag for NL) seem to be true to their 5 and 10 guessed print runs.

    I've experienced this, too. It's going to be harder to collect a full player set the further we get from release date. I know that's always true, but it seems like it may be even more so with this issue as they are highly sought after.

    corockies - I think we've seen with some players via ended listings that there are at LEAST five Stripes and Shatter Stripes. So probably more like ten or even more. There were some examples earlier in this thread. Regardless, it was a great idea for Topps to have some rare patterns that were unnumbered. It really helped 2014 Tek create a little of its own mystique. I hope they expand on that idea in the future (assuming they bring back Tek).

    Many being seen are the same card being sold 2 or more times.

    Probably the same reason why I have been buying Belle Diffractors since 1998 and only own like a dozen of them lol

    They probably realized in order for them to get a decent checklist and # of each play it would take a sh!t ton of time and more $ than they wanted? Just a guess.

    No RJ non-auto Blue Wave /5 have appeared on eBay in the 2+ months since release. I've seen a pic of one pulled on BO, but never saw it listed. 2 Blue /5 Autos have sold though (got the 2nd one).

    I have the full RJ set sans 1/1s and the non-auto blue.

    Didn't need to be diffractors , even then if no specific pattern is needed they could assemble it in a decent amount of time. But with base , they could have def done 1/1 , /5 , /10 or whatever without much planning at all. Maybe their working on something. Maybe their lazy.
