TA Fatigue

SDS

Been trying to get the TA done for Trout to pair with Mantle. I have 14/15 programs finished and I'm trying to get the TA Stage 1-2 done asap. I'm currently sitting at nearly 350k in stubs and the constant bidding for silver's has nearly burned out my enthusiasm for this card.

Is it just me or are the prices really inflated right now for these 76-79 silvers? Does anyone have any tips on how they go about these exchanges? I'm aware of theshowzone site, but I'm about to just buy golds at this point even though it's not cost effective to what I've been doing. Currently, I have 12 FOTF cards.

Anyone else feeling the same way?

Just buy the diamonds at quicksell prices. Might spend a little extra but cpu grind is unbearable. Stubs are easy to get nowadays. Trout is worth every playing second you can get him in the lineup

Unbearable for sure and this has been week 3 for me working on it for a few hours a day. And you are correct - every time I'm bidding I think I should be spending this time playing Trout. Thanks for the tip btw.

SDS

I ended up buying topps now diamonds at @7500-8000 stubs to finish stage 2 and all stage 3 (just didn't want to wait for multiples of cards to buy) ..... but I almost made all my stubs back after opening all the packs it rewards you.

im about to embark on this. Wish me luck, see you on the other side

SDS

Best of luck guys, it took me about 2 weeks to finally get all of stage 1 and 2 done, I used mostly silvers and golds (takes about 5/6 golds each time depending on the team) and I used anything that I got out of the free packs except if I landed a high priced diamond (Arenado) it's takes a ton of time but it's worth it for Trout.

I have most of stage one done with the [censored] in my binder. Only have 2 stage 2 done so yea grinding time lol

SDS

When I saw the TA grind this year I instantly knew I wouldn’t do it. I’d need to be single or 15 yo to have that kind of time.

SDS

Yup. I have 1 and 2 done for every team and in the process of completing 3. It can truly make the game feel like a job so I try to have fun and play with theme teams to break it up.

SDS

Homerun derby cards are what I used when they were super cheap. It’s worth spending the extra stubs and not having to deal with the headache of 100s of orders.

SDS

What's even worse is the 73-74 bronzes are inflated too, so I'm scraping together 70s and 71s making TA even more exhausting.

Luckily, I've got all but one team up to the Stage 2 Moment. Once I get 15K more exhangeables for the BoSox, I taking a well-deserved break.

SDS

I've been dealing with my own TA trials just trying to get to 30 FOTF cards. I do love those 76 silvers, but just can't bring myself to over pay for them. I'm 3 FOTF cards away though and may just buy the cheap Tier 3 ones.
Curious what other collection you all are avoiding by doing the Future Stars collection. I think I'm going to get to the 15 required with out them. Prime, Signature and Awards all got more reasonable than when the Trout collection dropped.
Maybe it's Prestige that you're not doing? I've got 4/5 and very close on Torre.

SDS

I didn't do Postseason, Prospects, and Future Stars. I had to grind to get 30 FOTF, couldn't do it all again to get through stage 2.

If I were you I would spend every stub I have getting all teams to 100% and selling all the rewards along the way. You should be able to get every team completed through stage 3 with no problem with the amount of stubs you have. You will probably get some decent poles along the way as well as selling the stage 3 bosses.

Save up you stubs and when SDS includes a pack with diamonds 89+ in conquest maps buy them up at 6900-qs value and do exchanges it will go quick and after stub rewards and pack you will make a consider amount back. I did this and completed TAs to 100% and made a ton of stubs

Some of the stage 3 bosses (a few anyway 13-20k) I can just buy outright with stubs. Or stay the course on the exchanges?

Why would you buy them? You still have to unlock them through the point system. If you buy them on the market you still have to earn them through the team affinities progress.
