The designs on Topps High Tek would send a geometry lover into delirium —swirling lines, sharply angled rectangles, criss-crossing lines, wavy backgrounds — there are plenty of patterns to experience.
Put that set in your binder. Or binders, I should say.
A hobby box for the 2016 will contain one pack, with eight cards in that pack. Price range should be around $60, depending on the retailer. Topps is promising one on-card autograph per box.
The base set will include 111 cards, with a mixture of rookies and veterans. Parallels collectors might find: Tidal Diffractor, Green Rainbow, Orange Magma Diffractor (a hobby exclusive numbered to 25) and 1/1 Black Rainbow, Black Galactic Diffractor and printing proofs. Topps is also inserting home uniform short prints that will have a different image and will be numbered.
Parallel signature cards also could be found by collectors, with Gold Rainbow, Orange Magma Diffractor (numbered to 25), Red Orbit Diffractor (5) and 1/1 versions in a Black Galactic Diffractor and printing proofs.
Numbered Tek buybacks also will be sprinkled throughout the print run.
I love the horizontal design, and while the patterns might make some collectors dizzy, others will find them intriguing.
