SS Eddie Mathews Price

What do you guys think SS Eddie Mathews price will settle in at over the next week or two? Looks like he starting to drop already but what do you think his floor is? Thanks in advance.

Idk, it’s tricky because unlike some of the other event cards, Eddie is actually really good. I say 90k sell now. I personally won’t be selling him, as I’m enjoying him. The only useless card in the event rewards heap is nen and that’s because his 92 is the same (much like Rollie fingers) could’ve given us a new starter possibly

Finest Arenado, Finest Bregman, SS Chipper Jones, SS Cabrera, SS Schmidt, SS Brett, SS Molitor, SS Donaldson, Finest Rendon, SS Boggs, just to name a few.

There are so many top level 3rd basemen at this point that the demand can't be that high. There are also a ton of signatures at this point which makes collecting for Honus easier than it was earlier in the season, so that's not a factor. Unless people really want Matthews or just like to collect all the cards, there shouldn't be a lot of demand for him. Plus, I would imagine most of the hardcore that collect everything can probably squeak out 30 wins between the 3 events to get him.

He's already below 90K sell now, and I have a feeling he drops quite a bit more.

I sold him immediately once I got him. listed him for 120k & got it within 10 minutes. I used those stubs to buy 5 Signatures ranging from 8k - 12k which I didn't have yet & surely wouldn't use unless for an event that caters to that type of player. But mostly to lock in 5 cards to my signature collection rather then just 1 high priced card I would not use anyway because Eddie Matt's stats dont compare as good to to other SS & Finest 3rd basemen does.

I think he’ll continue to drop once the next event starts, but could go back up in price after these events are all over.

Thanks all. I agree I think he might drop a bit, but I went ahead and bought for 85k. Pretty much have every other card I wanted, and nothing else I really wanted to spend it on anyways at this point....plus, I really liked the NL East Collection (93) Card and list BIG LH Bat and defense at third make balancing the lineup much easier....

Thanks...corrected

50-60k...he's not even a top 5 third baseman in the game.

I think the main demand for this card is souly due to KevinGohD I want to get him but probably wont just because I'm kinda done with the Show for a bit I've lost too may games on some BS like bloopers and poor fielding animations like guys doing a casual wind up and throw in when the situation clearly requires urgency. Or guys hitting balls that should be wilder pitches into gaps. Or my personal favorite every outfielder being able to run down a line drive hit 105+ MPH into a gap that in real life would never be caught. So I'm kinda over it I still play every now and then but not like I used to

At this point in the game we should all pretty much has our lineups set. With so many good options throughout the year, I always take the opportunity on these even guys to sell high when not everybody has him yet. Got my 8th voucher last night and sold him instantly for 100k. Well worth it.

Thanks guys. Based on the feedback, ended up selling the one I bought for 85k yesterday for a 100k early thing morning. Looking like more and more people are starting to get him now from the event and his price might continue to go down over the next few weeks...
