I had been out of the hobby for the first 12 years of this century and during that time they introduced this brand, High Tek, and shelved it soon after so I never knew it existed. I barely even knew anything about it as I only heard bits and pieces in passing from other hobbyists. Well, Topps brought it back for 2014 and it had a few Dodgers in it and they all had on card autographs. Though there is Kershaw, Hanley, etc., there was only one that I zeroed in on, El Toro himself, Fernando
Fernando also happened to be on my to reacquire list as I sold off the one signed ball of his that I had in my collection. Fernando was showcased in a couple other new releases but they were stickers and I knew he was going to be in Five Star (still plan to pursue one of those) but if I could snag one of these on the cheap then I was going to do it. There are various parallels in the set but all I wanted was an autograph of Fernando so whichever one came the cheapest would be the one I would purchase.
At the time of the transaction there wasn't a price guide to go by so I had to go with my gut and my gut told me that this was the one. The other thing that is unique about this set is that the cards are plastic and not the traditional paper. This will probably be my only High Tek card I will acquire unless I can get a Kershaw autograph at a major bargain but I am happy to say that Fernando is back in my collection. Now onto that Five Star autograph.
See through back
Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.
