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.
Keeping this on my radar. Please shoot me an email by the end of the weekend if you haven't heard from me. I have either one or two Bagwell Diffractors I can check.

Cleaned out one of our closets to make room for some more stuff and found bins full of cards that I had forgot about. One was a complete set of all 90 cards from 1998 which I thought was cool. Not same pattern but just one card of all 90 players.

I also then found singles from 1998 and 1999 Tek which I had forgot about for some time. Not a ton but maybe 40 cards or more.

Nice weekend surprise I guess haha

Cool find.

I don't suppose the Robbie (#67) might be pattern 11, 13, 23, 34, 36, 41, 52, 63, 70, or 82? Long shot, but you know I have to ask!

I am pretty sure I have a bunch of Alomar. Is he in a tribe uni in the 1998 set? I can look for you when I get home.

Post up your 1998 TEK dupes when you can. In fact EVERYONE Post your 1998 TEK dupes up. Still have just around 1400 1998 TEKs left after recently selling some Jeter, Salmon and Karros 98 TEKs.

Looks like someone in Virginia trying to unload their 1998 TEK cards at overpriced listings.
The ones I saw must be different. Base patterns for 3.50 per dlvd. Considering that’s what shipping usually costs these days I’d call that a steal. I was bummed I had all the patterns listed for the player I collect.

Wish Belle was included. These damn diffractors are amazing how few often they show up... I think I see a Belle once every 18 months.
