Has any one else completed the 14 Gwynn set? Just wondering because the shatter stripe only two have surfaced on eBay and one blue.
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).
Anybody seen a '98 buyback yet? I still haven't, nor have I heard of one still.

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.

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.
