And Then There Was One

In 2014 Topps brought back the Tek brand.  The 2014 version was scaled down quite a bit from the 1998 version, 12 patterns as opposed to 90.  Throw in the diffractor version and player collectors had 180 cards to chase down from the 1998 set.  While I only have 3 of the Lankford diffractors, I have been stuck on needing pattern 4 and 77 to finish the 90 card base run for a long time.  Last week I got a email from a fellow Lankford collector who had an extra pattern 4.  It arrived yesterday:

If anyone can find pattern 77, please drop me a note.


  1. Welcome to the community! Great to have another Cardinal collector in the mix.

  2. Thanks for the welcome. Maybe I can help with you Molina collection sometime
