Whoa, Tek Progress

This is Tek pattern number 21.  This is the first Tek card I have been able to find in about three years.  It leaves me with three cards yet to find.  At this rate, I will be retired before I find them all.

A Top Ten Want Has Been Found

I have not forgotten about this collection.  I have not been as active on it, but I did manage to grab the #8 card on my Top 15 Wants.

I am an unashamed huge fan of Diamond Kings.  So, the Recollection Collection autographed buyback was always a big target.  This is not from the Donruss Timelines set, it is from the Diamond Kings Recollection set from 2004.  So, finally added this one.

A Couple More Chrome Platinum Parallels

I have not been able to acquire any Alomar cards since the big one.  Until now.  I grabbed a couple more of the 2021 Topps Chrome Platinum Anniversary parallels.

Up first is the X-fractor, which was a fairly common parallel and not terribly shocking.  The other one though is the Red Atomic Refractor, which was serial-numbered to 100.  There are still plenty more of these parallels out there.  I like this set a lot.  I am also really happy that not only did Alomar appear in it, but he appeared with a team other than the Indians.  Obviously his time with the Indians is what Alomar is known for, but I love getting cards from the other teams too.
