Wish someone would trip across a box of this stuff and we could run back the player breaks we use to do back in the day on here...

Me too!

Or better yet - I keep hoping an intergalactic meteoroid would shoot across the sky and transmit beta waves to all the hardcore 98 Tek collectors, leaving them convinced beyond all doubt that 98 Tek is evil and they must sell their inventories to FCB members immediately :)

Thanks to chippercards.com and a recent ebay deal, I'll be scanning these beauties and adding them to the website soon. This gets me to just over 50% of the 98s.

Also added that gorgeous Diffractor. I'm trying to work out a deal for another one of those right now.

You can see here a handful of 99s and a red 00 as well. These cards are quite addictive!

Just seeing if I may be able to get some help here from fellow tek collectors.

I have 22 bagwell diffractors and now I've ended up with the duplicates. I was wondering if anyone here would happen to have a bagwell diffractor and be willing to trade it for one of my duplicates to help me get more patterns. I would be willing to add some cash/cards as well to sweeten the deal.

Awesome. A lot of my Teks, especially 1998, came from members of this board too.

Have sold a few 1998 TEKs recently so here is what I have as well as my own 1998 TEK Want List. I am still chasing 20 few specific 98 TEK cards as condition upgrades. They are not in bad condition but my completed 8100 card Master set is close to mint with no black dots, scratches, water marks, no peeling of the silver ovals which contain card #/pattern # and no misalignment of the card # pattern# within the silver ovals on back of cards. Updated 3/31/2020

My Extra 1998 TEKs to trade or sell (at High Beckett). 98 TEK for TEK trading only please.
