Some advice please

SDS

Im Trout, Cole, Verlander (AL), deGrom, Arenado, Bellinger (NL) away from completing LS. Sitting on 74k (bunch of packs from conquest to open later tonight) and the 97 Chapman whose going for 194k. I love the Chapman card but when I saw what he's still going for I'm second guessing myself on selling him.

I've never completed the LS collection in the 4 years I've actually played this series online, so I'd like to do that.

What's the move here?

Thanks in advance.

Invest in LS gold 84s and Silver 79s. Wait for TA3 to drop, 74k should be enough to get just Trout out of the way. If you invest every stub you earn until TA3 drops, you might be able to accrue enough to get two more. Highly suggest playing the event for those free packs and XP, sell any sellable diamond cards you currently have.

So, I should invest the 74k into 84's and 79's. What about the Chapman card, sell for around 170k after tax? Buy Verlander for 108k to get Wagner to replace Chapman? Invest the remain 60k, flip with that?

Im in the same boat as you, i have never completed collections before but i made it my mission this year.
I was lucky and pulled chapman from dotp and sold him at 200k

I would definitely do it again too, he will be the first guy i buy back when i have mantle but i couldnt pass up how much he was going for in the mean time.

I have a ton invested for ta stage 3 and when it drops ill finally have mantle plus enough extra to complete a few ta collections with exchanging. Investing in gold cards just above quick sell is no risk.

Sell chapman and invest it all. 240k should easily make over 500k when ta drops and you will be all set. I just wish it would drop already lol

Might be better at this point to sell a d try and complete LS and only minimally invest in TA3, with everyone talking about it,everyone and their brother is stacking hundreds or thousands of cards to unload when TA3 drops, which means for as much as they'll go up they'll come back down even faster as everyone tries to unload massive inventories.

SDS

Now is the time to sell Chapman, his value won't be higher, while it wont decrease until more packs release, ppl will soon turn there stubs to 5th inning and soon after. July potm and ta3, so this is probably the best time in terms of price and interest.

Are you thinking that the prices of these will double or triple? Is that what they’ve done in the past?

I think even with everyone heavily invested the prices will still spike for a few days.
For all the people who invest there are the people who just throw money and stubs at completing these collections as quickly as possible, as well as people using their own inventory to do exchanges instead of selling them all off.
Exchanging the cards keeps them off the market and enough will get exchanged to drive the prices up, maybe not as much as in stage 2 but should still be a very safe investment. For all i have invested in stage 3 if i had to quicksell everything right now i would lose around 10k, its as safe as safe can be in this game.

Oh,I don't think it won't be profitable, I'm just wondering how much impact everyone investing will have, maybe the golds only hit 2-2.5instead of 3-3.5,that's still a hefty profit over QS though

So consensus is to sell Chapman, and buy golds around 1100(?) stubs. What would be the number to shoot for on the 79 silvers?

That's the idea yeah.

everything under 400 is a good price to buy 79's for

Appreciate all the feedback. Sold Chapman, now got 247K to invest. Hopefully this will pay off to where I can get the last 6 diamonds I need.
