The Leiter side of Topps Tek

Play on words!
I love Topps Tek. Even though it was super wacky, especially in the 1990s, the cards themselves have always looked really nice. I've always been a sucker for clear cut cards.

I enjoy the Topps Tek Yankee autograph issues of the past two years. I love the El Duque, but I keep missing out on them in eBay auctions. However, I did snag this Al Leiter auto, and I though it was cool he was included as a Yankee. I assume this is him from his 2005 stint, as opposed to when he was a rookie.

This is the base version, as I know there are a few parallels out there. I like Al's simple signature, although you can tell he had been signing hundreds of cards. It's usually a bit neater. Still, I'm glad to finally add one of these bad boys to my collection.


  1. Long live acetate and on-card autographs!

  2. That's a pretty clean signature from Leiter, one of the best I've seen on card in quite a while. Nice!

  3. I've notice that card on eBay a few times when looking for trade bait. He has a nice signature. Great pickup!
