Checklist

Base Set

NOTES:

  • As with the previous year's High Tek, there are 16 different background patterns in 2017 Topps High Tek with eight patterns (designated with an "A" in the checklist below) exclusive to half the set, and the other half ("B") with their own set of eight background patterns.
  • The "A" cards are of infielders and designated hitters; while "B" cards are of pitchers, catchers, and outfielders.
  • Each pattern level is tiered with the most common patterns (which we've designated as patterns 1A and 1B) coming at the rate of seven or eight per box, and the most scarce (patterns 8A and 8B) one-per-case.
  • Each Pattern 8 card is serial-numbered to 15 copies and is dubbed (by Topps) as the "SpecTEKular Diffractor."
