Stub Sale economics?

SDS

I have 375K stubs with the AL already completed. Should I buy all the high tier NL diamonds now, do they rise after a stub sale?

After a stub sale, is that when golds and low level diamonds will be lowest since a lot may be pulled?

Should I buy an extra Trout now for 275K and hope he rises to like 350k then sell for profit?

SDS

Stub sale?? What's that? Lol

I'm surprised there havent been anymore flash sales

SDS

I don't see anything. The answer is prices go up with a stub sale.

SDS

Just like in real live when there is more currency in circulation prices will go up

SDS

Prices arent going down until better cards come put. The biggest issue is theres obviously no season so these prices stay where they are until something better comes along. Enjoy it for now, itll be like this imo until probably the 6-7th inning program

SDS

Okay, so WHICH types of cards go up in value. High diamonds like trout and Berlinger?

All diamonds?

Can I get any type of specifics here?

I always ask questions, ppl respond and manage to answer none of them specifically.

SDS

I don’t know why everyone is talking about a stub sale it’s a ways away. They never do a stub sale before all-star break.

I've noticed the highest tier of Live Series diamonds going up -- the "gatekeepers," if you will.

  • Mike Trout has risen from about 220K around launch to 275K+

  • Nolan Arenado started the year around 70-80K and is now consistently over 100K

  • Max Scherzer was around 55-60K in mid-March and he's now around 80-85K.

  • Justin Verlander and Jacob deGrom were like 40-50K and are now hovering around 70-75K.

What do all those players have in common? They're all at or over 90 overall. It seems like players 89 overall and under have had their prices remain pretty steady or drop a bit.

Most diamonds are going to go up. And by most, basically anything that isn’t dirt cheap because it’s terrible like Jeff Bagwell.

The “gate keepers” as mentioned above will go up the most. That doesn’t mean they’ll make you the most. The question you really want answered is what’s going to make you the most and it’s tough to say. Trout probably isn’t going to go from 270,000-540,000 and double your stubs. George Spring might go from 6500-12000 tho, and make you more money if you spent it all on him. He also might not go ANYWHERE because he’s SO cheap and EVERYBODY already has him.

Your best bet is to just leverage it, buy one or two high end like Bellinger or Cole, and quite a few lower level guys like Harper and Marte. Try to make sure you need them yourself or wouldn’t mind using them if they don’t go up crazy high. 84 level Golds will go up for exchanges most likely as well.

It's risky but trout usually goes way up in price on stub sale an rarely comes back down to what he was before stub sale

Gettin Cole too. When I finished the AL, I paid 225 for Trout and 75k for Cole. I think Cole is 120 now.

So do you think I should grab bellinger, Yelich, Scherzer, and degrom now with my 360ish K?

Depends on how fast you want Mantle and I you want to spend it on anything else.

The 3 you mentioned may come down in price; they may not.

But if you have nothing else to do with the stubs; buy them.

Except for every year when they do it before Memorial Day.

A stub sale might be a month away. Then the sale usually lasts two weeks. Then it takes another couple weeks for the prices to go down a bit. Are you willing to part with your bank roll now and not get a return for another month or two? What if something comes along that just have to have but cant because you are waiting for a stubs sale? Once you sell your cards for profit after the sale you gotta be patient because you have more stubs on hand yet everything is overpriced.

SDS

Just make sure you turn every stub in your coffer into a card in your digital binder before a stub sale begins and you’ll be swimming in a pool of your stubs like Scrooge McDuck!

Hate to burst your bubble, prices right now are about as high as there going to be especially for cards like trout and yellich or even bellinger. Once the pricey legends start dropping the live series cards will start falling to more reasonable levels. I always wait to buy the love series diamonds until like July and august because the demand for them is non existent at they point as most people have benched the live series cards for end game legends at this point.

SDS

Yeah, definitely don’t “invest” now... Just keep your ear to the ground and buy big when a sale is announced before the market goes nuts.

Okay, I'll hold off for now. I feel like by the time I have enoigh to complete for Mantle, I could just buy Headliners or BOsses that are close to him, with none of the hassle of lokcing in hundreds of thousands of stubs........
