Spending stubs right now is a bad idea

SDS

Banks and Aroldis at 200k.. they are great, but those cards will tank and soon. The 99s are going to start flying now. Don’t blow your stack on lower tier 99s and cards that will come out in packs again.

The best players in the game haven’t even started showing up yet, and they are close.

Now is the time to build that stack of stubs up and wait. And if you like the cards out now and consider them end game, wait just a little bit longer to buy them. I promise you will regret holding especially the elite tier ducks on the pond.

SDS

I Agree 100% with you

have collections finally finished and have about a 50/50 split on stubs and golds, silvers, sh!t load of bronze 72’s for TA3

I could get Banks right now but I’d have to sell Dibble, just can’t force myself to pull the trigger

SDS

I am 90k away from completing the collection. I have not bought a single player (except for collections) and I am a lvl 98 silver. I fell like I am completing the collection at the right time b/c now all the 99's are coming out and I can now use any stubs I gain on players finally.

SDS

Well buying the lower cards that ranked bc of the The new cards is a good idea

SDS

The game is buns already

SDS

Great advice, exactly what I'm doing.

SDS

I’ve got about 1500 plus 78/79 cards pretty evenly spread out across the divisions.

Ready to use them to get the top 10-12 TA3 guys that come out than will sell off A good chunk for a profit To get market cards that interest me. Will do Showdowns slowly time get the others.

Thanks for the advice! I only need Cole, Trout, Verlander, Scherzer, Degrom & Bellinger to complete Liver Series, so I was going to cave-in and purchase 2 Ducks on The Pond packs. I’m currently at 75K stubs, so I guess I’ll just hold on to my stubs.

SDS

I have 400k stubs I'm sitting on just for that reason. I'll wait until the 99's I actually want start showing up.
Sold Chapman for 185k when I pulled him. I bet I'll be able to buy him back soon for 100

SDS

There will definitely be some good 99s coming but there won’t be a better lefty reliever this year.

Wagner might get there but I don’t he gets another card til October-November.

SDS

Think Wagner would get outlier? Close call.

SDS

I have 440k with still needing to sell Felix Hernandez

SDS

Yeah, this weekend was a huge influx of stubs for working the Jackie Robinson and Fathers Day programs. Plus everything tanked. I filled out the players league and the prospect collections but didn’t lock them in. I have more than 100k in stubs too and probably another 25k in sell orders on some LS diamonds I’m selling that I expect expecting to bounce back a little. Pulled 2 diamonds, Story and Realmuto, out of that five pack BIAH bundle (Jackie program?). Good weekend overall. I’ve got a lot of stubs/cards that are kind of liquid, just waiting to find out how to use them.

SDS

I pulled Cole and sold him to get Adell. As an Angels fan I don't care that he was 170k.

SDS

Yeah I’m not paying them crazy prices for Banks or chapman I’ll wait .more chapman for bullpen help as it stand he looks like the best reliever in the game banks looks nice but I’m not taking my CAP out for him rather save myself 180k stubs. These are some of the first 99s/end game cards so of course they gonna be expensive/inflated I’ll wait and see what the landscape looks like in 2-3 weeks from now.

SDS

What ratings should you stack up on in anticipation of TA3? I've seen people say 72s or 73s and others say 78s or 79s. If I'm focused on a specific team should I just load up on those ratings of cards from that division?

Low 70s is more economical than high 70s currently.

SDS

You gotta ask you what your Tolerance and value for time invested is though. For many, buying 78/79 cards where it takes 1/3 of the time to purchase ( depending on how many you are buying) May be the better Play even if it costs you a bit more stubs ( Lord knows my time is worth more than the difference).

SDS

I am completely broke but the pleasure of using Chapman is too great for me to sell even at 200k. I can live with it since his stats are so strong he will be the best lefty for the rest of the game cycle unless they give Wagner outlier AND a sinker.
