So I went to the Sunday of the most recent White Plains show, and scored about 60 1998 Teks from TNTNJ's 25¢ boxes. No diffractors, sadly, but there were several I needed and some good names. Mind-boggling that these went untouched Friday and Saturday! Too many people looking for high-end and not willing to dumpster dive!

1998 Tek Diffractors for Sale or to Trade

Close to 400 of my duplicate 1998 Tek diffractors for sale or trade listed below. All cards have been kept in acid-free, pvc-free Ultra Pro sleeves since I got the cards. These are all decent looking cards. Just don't have the time nor inclination to scan them. Please don't ask. Please contact me by e-mail at [email protected] -- not private messages or replies on this message board. Check with me for availability before paying. PayPal user id is [email protected]. Prices are firm; not looking to dicker over prices. Add postage of $3.80 for up to three cards; add $5.00 for postage for four to nine cards. Free postage with the purchase of ten or more cards or cost of $100.00 . Pay for insurance if you want it. If you would rather trade than purchase, please e-mail me a list of the card numbers/pattern numbers you have available to trade and for which of my cards. I have 3700-plus unique diffractor patterns in my collection and am certainly willing to trade for those I don't have.

Thanks to one popping up on COMC a couple weeks ago, I'm now down to needing one Buhner for the set. I think I was stuck on two for over two years. Yikes. In the meantime, I almost accidentally put together the Griffey set just picking them up here and there. Kind of shocked I'm down to 8. If you have one I need I have dupes to trade! Please see my signature for my needs.

That's one of the great things about 98 Tek is you can do it at a leisurely pace and just be pleasantly surprised when you get close. Of course, it gets maddening when you get down to just a couple, but what a journey LOL

Hello all,

It has been a long time since I have been here as I was mostly out of the hobby. That changed about 4 months ago when I bought out an older card shop (heyday peak of around 2004 according to the owner). Yep, the whole thing from the awesome 1990's-2000's inserts/GU down to the BULK 80's commons. With that said, there were some incredible finds which include among other things, a stack of 1998 Topps Tek. Since this thread is cleared dedicated to them I thought I would post them up here. Along with the stack I found 3 diffractors as well.

I have not researched these much and if someone is not happy with the pricing, just make an offer. I try to be open the best I can.

SOLD shipped or $1.50/each (unless noted) plus $3.50 shipping no matter how many (via BMWT or BoxWT)
