Question for the 98 Topps Tek crowd:
Why do Player Collectors in the hobby seem to love 98 Topps Tek but 99 & 00 Topps Tek, not quite so much?

I've got a small Mark McGwire PC which I worked on from 1995-2005, not many "good" cards
Adding a few to it now and then, and I kind of love acetate cards, so I can use any McGwire 98 Topps Tek ... have none
can use most of 99-00
haves 99 Topps Tek - 7a
haves 00 Topps Tek - 2,3,8,9,10

I also have a small Shawn Green PC
can use any 00 Shawn Green Topps Tek, .... have none

have lots of nice cards to trade, but no 98 Tek at all, and minimal other
@abide I have all the 2000 Tek Shawn Green Patterns #1-15 & his ArchiTek A13 insert card FS/FT. I also have Mark Mcgwire 1999 Tek Pattern 7B-P18 and 2000 Tek Pattern 10-14 FS/FT. Let me know if you are still interested.

I have a Thome pattern 90 I will gladly send you if you can shoot me your address. I got an extra in a lot I purchased as I work toward completing the 8100 card set (down to needing 266). I won't be able to get it out until next week, but will gladly send it if you would like it.
Send me your want list to [email protected] Do you have a list of extra 98 TEK you could send me as well.

Hey all - I saw a few messages and thought it easier to post here. I did spend some time looking for my duplicates today and did come across a few (stacks were mostly a few players like Thomas, Chipper and Vlad). As I have told others, I am horribly organized, but slowly working to get the entirety of my collection inventoried. It has been fun as I have found quite a few nice cards tucked away in various boxes. Back to the 98 Teks - I was not overly successful in finding people's need list items today, but did find the following:

@heydief - I found a Ventura pattern 69. If you would like it just message me your ship to address
@Pinbreaker - I found an Edgar Pattern 30 and 55. If you would like those just message me your ship to address

I do have to travel for work this week, so it probably won't be until the week of 9/27 that I am able to get them shipped out.

For everyone else - I will keep looking as I find more of my duplicates that I put away.

@togaman - I just got a look at your list. I will add it to the lists I have received from others and include it as I find my duplicates.
