SDS increasing live high diamond prices to generate more pack sales

SDS

Bc who would buy the highs right now at their current prices??? And when the bigger stub sales hit look out!

SDS

That's not how that works.

Watch some videos on economics and inflation. The community market is just like economics in real life to some extent.

SDS

We control the market, they do not.

Most of the diamond live series cards would not make my team. It is all for the collection rewards like Mantle. That is what makes them cost that much and why I was forced to pick up Cole for 160,000.

Gate keeper cards will always increase in cost. Those big 90+ will always increase unless something becomes available to create more surplus or those cards. Case and point prospect cards. The high teir cards for all set pack where 56k to 80k until the started giving the packs away for free now they all range between 18k to 30k. This has been the story for years with this game.

This is true, but to an extent as SDS also plays a hand. If odds of getting a high diamond (90+) are as slim as they have been, those cards don’t make it to market because players keep them to complete collections. This leads to a low amount of these cards in circulation which in turn leads to players bidding higher and higher for a card that’s not being sold. Which is where we’re at now. 7 cards over 100,00. Now if the odds were to increase for those high diamonds you’ll see prices come back down to earth but they have no reason to do that.

Incorrect again. prices are high cause there is nothing in the market to compete with them,all cards with compare OVRs are programs and non sellable, with nothing to have demand on,all the demand is settling on the gatekeepers.
even if more supply was added, the price drop would be minimal and short, then the cards would be right back to current prices.

Again, that places it all in our Hands. Odds are the same for Mike Trout out of a pack as they are Clayton Kershaw

SDS

The only reason they were low last year were those SS choice packs that caused a firesale. Without those live series would gave kept going up last year too.

That’s what they say but can we really believe that? Kershaw, Springer and the lower diamond are going for Quick Sell prices. You don’t think this has anything to do with people getting these diamonds way more than they get the higher ones?

Odds of Trout and Kershaw are certainly not the same! I have no doubt that the 1/50 odds of pulling a diamond are accurate.

That said, The odds of that 2% being an 85-89 as opposed to a 90+ are significantly higher. And not just because there are more of them. We aren't privy to those odds but if what you said were true, do you think an 90 Bellinger would be selling for approximately 12 times what an 89 Betts sells for? It's supply. Pure and simple.

SDS

I'm not sure where you guys are seeing that the odds are the same. It just lists 1:50 in packs, but if you looked at the guaranteed diamond pack odds, it was 1:1 for an 85 to 89, but I believe 1:25 for a 90+ diamond. I'd presume its the same once you get to diamond in standard packs as well.

But from 9 win rewards in BR and 12 wins in events you get 85-89.

Exactly. Yes those gatekeepers cards are expected to be high. But not this high. We haven’t even had a real stub sale. People aren’t using Gerrit Cole or DeGrom online. Simply for collections and there aren’t enough being sold which leads to players bidding higher and higher for the same card

There’s plenty of players on the market better than some of the Live players. DeGrom and Cole are not good online. There are plenty of comparable players both pitching and hitting, aside from Trout. If more supply was added I can guarantee you the price would drop, that’s simple supply and demand.
