Why is Rookie Machado still 5.5k stubs

SDS

I get that the rookie collection came out, and I also know a bunch of people invested in Machado and made a killing -- but as someone trying to figure out the market, why on earth is a 78 Machado STILL worth 5.5k stubs when the other silver rookies have dropped to the 700-800 range?

SDS

because there's no way to get more of the card into the market.

I don't even remember what it was a reward for?

It was one of the events, can't remember which.

Rookie Biggio: available in the XP Path
Rookie Eric Davis: available in the XP Path
Rookie Ruth: available in the XP Path
Rookie Franco: available in the XP Path
Rookie Machado: Live Series Event 3 win reward

As the LS Event isn't currently live and no new inventory is being created...

Demand > Supply

What is the rookie collection reward?

SDS

As of now, stubs and XP. It is assumed that there will eventually be a Honus-like collection (google it.)

SDS

It will likely only go up. Even if they do another LS event their isn’t going to be much supply coming in. Pretty much anyone that plays online is likely past 5 wins in the LS event path. Personally I wish you couldn’t exchange flashback cards for this reason. Almost all copies of the card have either been collected, exchanged (so gone forever) or hoarded by investors

Be happy that it's 5k now, just wait until the Honus Wagner (big collection) comes out and every card sky rockets in price.
