1999 Topps TEK (stylized in CAPS) is a massive 2700-card set released exclusively to Hobby stores participating in Topps' Home Team Advantage program. As with the previous year's product each card is printed on acetate, and has multiple background pattern variations.

Each of the 45 players has two cards: Card "A" depicts the player in his Home uniform, while card "B" shows him in his "Away" jersey. Each of the 90 cards has 30 patterns (down from 90 in 1998) for a grand total of 2700 unique cards. Each card is sequentially-numbered twice: First by card number then by pattern number.


20 packs per box, four cards per pack (MSRP: $5). Home Team Advantage stores only.

Each pack contains either a green (A) or orange (B) paper fold-out checklist.
