Topps Tek Confuses the **** Out of Me!!!!

I love chasing parallels.  I supercollect Charlie Morton.  I've been buying parallels of Russell Martin's 2013 Topps Chrome since it's release.  I love parallels.  They're fun to collect.

Topps Tek, tho.....HELL NO!!!!

There are so many different variations and they are all so minutely different that I just can't keep up with all the shapes and diffractors, and refractors and images resembling tractors.

Take these two cards for example.  They look pretty similiar, right?

Yes they do.  One diffracts light a little bit different and that warrants a special numbering /25 copies.

The scan on the back is more evident of it's lightshow it gives off.

This type of parallel stands out much clearer to me.  It's black and white what kind of parallel this is.  If you don't get the pun, get the hell off my blog.

The three cards above were won for $27 delivered.  Overall it's not a bad price to pay for two cards numbered to less than 25 copies.


  1. I've lost a few auctions for a Polanco autos out of that set. Haven't bothered looking at the parallels. Probably a smart move because from the looks of it the process would make me go crazy.

  2. Know how you feel. I'm trying to chase the auto version and it's confusing on some of them which one they are by looks. At least they're numbeted.
