Preview Gallery: 2014 Topps High Tek



By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor

One of the more-unique creations of the late-1990s is back on Wednesday and it’s Tek from Topps.

This time, it’s called Topps High Tek and it will be a hobby-only release with an autograph in every one-pack box.

You can see a selection of preview images as well as a few autographs from early online sellers — after the jump.


There will be up to 12 different parallels — background patterns — per card. The base set will consist of 100 cards with nine other parallels per card. 

The autographs will all be signed on-card with Disco, Clouds, Black and White, Red Storm, Blue Dots, Charcoal Galactic and printing proof versions.

    How about any autograph set with inscriptions like “Money Koufax”, “Money Jeter” and “Money Trout”?

    Something not right about using Taveras. Couldn’t you have used another rookie or was he the only signee?

    Really? Oscar Taveras?
    At least its not a redemption card for him, but the guy is dead, so I have my doubts that many people
    will be happy to pull the card.

    Of the 18 shown, there are only 5 (max) players from the bunch that I would want. Design is awesome on some, not so much on others. Def a buy singles’ product for me. I don’t mind Oscar being in the any product, however as stated previously, if bustin, I’d be pretty upset if that was my hit and not an “extra”.

    Awesome awesome looking cards, autos included.

    But the packaging is completely utterly wrong in every shape and form!

    Tek was built on base cards because of all the variations. Granted, autos are needed in today’s products but TEK is not a one pack for $79 issue.

    If a product is built on base cards, not autos or game used, why package it like autos, game used are the number one draw?

    Two autos a box with 18 packs at $6 per is how this issue should be done.
