Description

1998 Topps TEK (stylized in CAPS) is a massive 8100-card set released exclusively to Hobby outlets in October, 1998. This set consists of 90 cards all printed on acetate, with 90 patterns available for each player. Each card is sequentially-numbered twice: Card number and pattern number. At 8100 cards (90 players X 90 patterns), it is the largest set ever produced.

Diffractors, which are seeded 1 in every 6 packs, are parallels of every unique pattern. Because diffractors are not serial-numbered, it's unknown how many were made of pattern. Many collectors agree between 10 and 20 were made for each pattern.

Distribution

20 packs per box, 4 cards per pack (MSRP: $5).
