Prime vs SS ... huh?

SDS

Yo what’s the difference between Prime and SS? I get that Prime represents their “prime” years, but isn’t that basically what SS is — a composite of their best seasons? It looks like Frank’s MLB 20 Prime is a little better than his MLB 19 SS.

Frank’s card art gives me butterflies. Like when I come home and see Robin Yount sunbathing nude on my couch.

Yount is still looking for that man...maybe Frank is the perfect fit. Prime is based off of their best years and sig is based off of their whole career

SDS

Prime is a set 3 year period

Sig series encompasses their whole career

Awards cards are one season.

So a Prime should, in theory, be the better card? Because an SS is based off a full career so it would also have to incorporate data from their worst years, right?

It just seems like they’re making up attributes kind of at random either way.

The attributes do seem a little random. Prime should be the better card but that hasn't always been the case

I always thought SS was their 3-4 best stat years over their career and Prime is their 3-4 best years in a row.

SDS

SS can be better than prime bc they take the best attributes from their whole career. So if a guy was fast and good at base running early in his career and then developed power later in his career, his SS card could have the good base running and power

This is why SS is better than prime. Barry bonds was a speedy little [censored] with pop in his early years. He morphed into a balloon headed monster that hits bombs at record levels. So his SS would be a speedy [censored] who hits bombs.

Also if Biggio were Prime in lieu of Sig, he likely wouldn’t have Catcher secondary.

This is it. This is the best comment on the forum.

Yeah, i thought SS was the repackaged Immortal card from 18, where it was the highest they ever were at each attribute. So by that a Prime Bonds from SF would have the same power as a SS Bonds, but his SS card would have his early speed.

I want to say that hitting attributes for sig cards are career averages for each one but has a significant boost if they were better in their prime. So basically career average with an emphasis on prime years. The only attributes that are treated like immortals(the highest they have ever been), are speed fielding and bunting.

Career average with a boost, yeah, that sounds like totally made up stuff right there.

I mean I don’t feel like looking through every single one of last years streams to find when they talk about how sig cards are calculated but feel free to look if you don’t believe me. I can promise you that the only “career best” attributes are fielding, speed, and bunting or Ken Griffey Jr. would have had 125 power last year

Didnt say you were making it up, saying that these cards are made up
