This Is Why You Don't Sell Off Any Cards You Get Except For Duplicates

SDS

With no money spent and without wasting time flipping or investing, I was able to get 99 Trout within minutes. I started with a bankroll of 420k stubs before the collection reward was released. I needed to buy 3 prospect cards, 2 postseason cards, and 1 award card to get 99 Trout. I now have over 620k stubs. I also have every single inning boss from this year. I share this only because so many people spend so much time flipping and investing. I did that last year and it was miserable. So, I decided I wouldn't do that at all this year. While I don't have many headliners, BR rewards, WS rewards, or TA2 or TA3 cards (I will not buy these -- I like earning them and don't do exchanges except for the non-sellable cards from the team specific TA packs. Plus this gives me something to continue working towards throughout the year and a sense of accomplishment when I unlock the reward cards and move up TA levels. Plus it gives me a reason to use different cards from each team) I do have a complete live Series collection and Trout collection with many other fun cards too. Needless to say, I'm very happy and content with my card collecting strategy this year. And if they release another collection later, I'll still be in great shape.

You are a wise man. Kudos, my friend.

I may just use this theory from now on. I’ve been selling off pretty much everything, thinking that once my objectives are accomplished, that I could go back and buy whatever I wanted to give a try.

How did you complete the LS collection? Did you buy most of the higher rated diamonds? Or get some pack/daily login/post game/xp level up luck?

The mindset I've developed because of today is to try and have 20 of every card type

For real. Flash sale flipping is the way to go. I only wish I had hoarded more awards cards.

I've made over 600k so far just listing random cards on the mobile market. I sure am glad I bought those Eddie Murray/Bench/Maz/Mathewson type cards for 6-12k. These prices are unreal, and I will be throwing the rest of the cards I bought when i get home from work.

I completed live series a couple months ago by selling my duplicates and saving up for expensive diamonds if I didn't get lucky enough to pack them. The game gives out tons of packs. I've probably opened thousands of free packs this year through just playing the game. I probably opened 50+ today alone from various rewards. I don't buy any packs with my stubs. I did pull Belli twice in 3 days when I needed him as 1 of about 4 or 5 players left as I was closing in on completing the collection. I remember pulling Sale and Lindor early on which helped when they were fairly expensive. I've pulled a good amount of diamonds but nothing I would consider crazy luck other than 2 Bellis in 3 days. I've opened up a ton of packs and the ratio seems about right. I completed teams one at a time and divisions one at a time for the most part so I could receive the stub rewards quicker and help offset the market cost of the next team. You don't have to rush through anything -- I just kept my process efficient by sequencing my collection rewards properly.

Also only use buy and sell orders. Never use buy now or sell now options.
