Not even tidals or orbits or galactic sparklies. I mean, yes, it's easier to chase now, but that was the ONE thing that made Tek unique (well two if you count the acetate), and they got rid of it.
    Agreed, there wasn't really anyone in the checklist that made me dig into the nuance of it but after seeing some pulls and I looked at it, lame. They might as well call is Topps plastic and call it a day.
    PATTERNS ARE WHAT MAKE TOPPS TEK!!!
    Perhaps it isn't their best selling line but it certainly bhas it's fan base, why screw with it!? Just make new patters, switch colors, swap out tidals for magma for whatever else but keep the ****ing patterns!
    I had a feeling this was coming the year they introduced Bowman tek

    hahahahahahahahaha.... Topps Tek doesn't have Tek anymore? who is running that sht show? Lets see what their future release sheet looks like. . .

    Bowman Chrome
    Bowman with Chrome (paper)
    Topps Tekless
    Topps Tekless with Tek
    Topps Tekless Chrome
    Topps Heritage*
    Topps Logoless (gotta compete with those other brands)
    Topps Tablecloth (the high roller product)










    *they overplayed all the nostalgia without doing anything new so realize that nothing from this era will be nostalgic enough to make a set out of in 10 years when the original run ends

    hey [MENTION=12279]banjar[/MENTION] I hear there's a new Topps Alomar set in the works: Topps Tekless Tablecloth with Tek. You see, Robbie Alomar wrote his cease and desist letter to Topps on 6 different tables with 37 different tablecloth patterns. You better bust out the wallet!!

    Topps has become a parody of itself, I have to get the jokes in quick before the company becomes even worse than now. (else my imagination wont be able to think of something funnier than what they create)



    I see Gerrit Cole has a supposed offer of 7years 245mil from the Yanks which would make him richest pitcher ever.

    It always works out well when teams give massive, long term contracts to pitchers coming off career years. With history on their side, I think the Yankees are on the right track!

    It would be nice if the Angels came over the top with an even bigger offer. (to bankrupt themselves) I could understand this money if Cole had done this level of dominance for 3 years but you're correct, this is a career year by far.

    The Angels. Yes. With Pujols nearing the end of his wildly expensive and wildly unproductive tenure, they need another black hole to keep funneling that cash into. So far they've gotten 13.6 WAR from Pujols for the bargain basement sum of 169 million.

    BTW I saw Ford v. Ferrari tonight. I'm not a massive car guy, but I've seen nearly every car depicted in that movie in person and I thought it was a good watch.
