Help me understand this Honus collection.

SDS

I’m kinda lost as to why people are spending so many stubs for this collection. With all of these 99 cards out already how much better could this card be than what we already have available to us?

SDS

Because we want the best of the best of the best sir

SDS

Its just for completion sake, if I’m being honest. There won’t be any possible reward that would be worth millions of stubs more than the next best option, and I think we all know that. This card is a trophy. Nothing more, nothing less

it will be one of, if not the best, cards in the game. Now, my opinion last year was that Honus wasn't worth dropping all that money on, but I'm also only average at the game, top players might notice more of a difference.

But what it really comes down to, is people like to check boxes, people want the rare card, or they need something to chase or collect.

Its up to you if you feel its worth it or not.

SDS

Also, if memory serves me right, there was a TON of XP as well for each voucher and even more when all of the vouchers were exchanged for Honus.
@SaveFarris would remember for sure on the XP

Did you only get XP for exchanging each collection type? You didnt get stubs? I didnt play last year, so I wasnt part of the Honus collection experience.

SDS

Yeah I can understand the trophy aspect part of it but I can’t agree with this player will be that much better than what is already available. Like how much better can this card be than Prestige Walker or even Walkers base card?

I agree, but unless either Mays or Griffey is the reward for this collection, they will be had for cheaper. Mantle won’t be that much better than Griffey or Mays by the time they come out. Even with basically Max hitting attributes Babe and Ted can’t field well. Bonds/Stocker would be the only card thats actually worth that many stubs more than the next man up. Anyone who thinks otherwise is lying to themselves. Aaron would be my next choice, but again Mays and Griffey would easily compare

@SaveFarris does not remember. 😕

He did keep notes on how much was required of each card, but not of XP or stub rewards.

Someone who'll be next to their PS4 within the next 4 hours could fire up 19 and let us know.

SDS

It's not worth it if you look at it purely from a stub cost. But it's like going into a game and trying to get all the achievements even if you can win the game without it., you do it because you're a completionist.

Atleast that's why I am

Once you've completed Honus in 19 the rewards part showing any stubs/XP is blocked

SDS

Honus himself was 50k stubs and 100k XP

Each of the 7 vouchers was 2.5k stubs and 10k XP 😬

SDS

They better make it a good player because most people that are debating about doing it like me may not do it if it’s Jeter or someone like that

SDS

This we know: There's a 1,000,000% chance someone will complain once the reward is revealed.

(I saw someone earlier lamenting the possibility of UNIT because they didn't want someone who wouldn't be in the lineup every single game.)

I'll get them no matter who it is because I'm a completionist. But if it's Jeter, he's never cracking the lineup ever unless there's some sort of associated star mission. If I need stats from a Yankee SS, I've got POTM Didi.

No matter who they release, it will be a letdown to everyone.
Honus caught us all surprise last year and that was the beauty of it.
This year people were preparing for it since day 1.

That is why I suspect we will get at least two cards to mitigate the let down many players will have.

Only a few cards would be universally accepted:
Aaron
Clemente
A maxed out Trout card
Big Unit
Koufax
maybe another few players, but that list is short.

They want us to collect a bunch of cards. I’m thinking it’s not going to be too many cards for each unless this card is actually amazing. They know what cards people will put all their stubs into or less stubs into a less desirable card

I mean... it might be shiny...

Boy, Captain America over here! "Best of the best of the best, sir!" "With honors." Yeah, he's just really excited and he has no clue why we're here.
