Why is Glavine's Top Card Only a 96

SDS

WE HAVE ENOUGH BRAVES. But why is Glavine only a 96? You are telling me that Felix Hernandez is the same level pitcher as Glavine! I wish they would give him a card above a 96, he was over shadowed by Smoltz and Maddux when he was in the majors. I hope SDS can give him a better card next year because he deserves one

SDS

He's actually a 95... And I agree.. he's a HOF pitcher with much better credentials than Felix, yet Felix can get to a 98

SDS

They’re two different card types.

If Glavine got a Cy Young award card based on his 1991 season, it would definitely be boosted higher.

But Hernandez’s 2010 season was basically every bit as good as any season Glavine had. If Hernandez got a Signature Series card instead, it would be lower.

SDS

Felix in his 20s > Glavine in his 20s

They should have gave Glavine a cy young card then, I feel like sig series, prime, and awards should all be even

Even worse

For me, everyone should be a 99 with all 99s in every stat

Forget Glavine vs Felix, the real crime is giving Jacoby Ellsbury a 96 Prime card.

Giving Kevin Smith a 90 overall card is a bigger crime.

SDS

It would have been a 99, but SDS couldn’t figure out how to give him strike calls a foot and a half out of the zone as a perk.

Kinda, but not really. None of those Future Star cards are based on any real stats. They’re all made up.

Ellsbury is supposedly based off some kind of “prime” even though he only had one year worth talking about. Prime cards are supposed to be based off actual stats, but this clearly isn’t the case with Ellsbury.

Revoting the 1998 NL CY, who do you think wins it instead of Glavine? Leiter, Maddux, or Kevin Brown? To me Kevin Brown.

Btw, his sinker would be nasty in this game.

Yep, as a Sox fan I will even admit that

I have a feeling were not done with the Smoltz/Glavine/Maddux cards. If you look under nameplates there's one for all 3 combined that makes me think there's a program still coming this summer possibly making all 3 of them 99s? There's also nameplates for Griffey, Ortiz, Nolan Ryan, and Babe Ruth.
