99s Left and Where

SDS

So, we are now down to likely 2 inning programs (with new cards) remaining, so here is my guess as to where the remaining 99s (I am going to leave out the 98s for now, ie Edmonds/Miller/etc).

BR - I think we are done with new rewards for the year. Less people playing and the BR gods likely playing less too. I think they end it with Alomar and Wagner.

WS - I think there might only be 1 more season with new cards (based on last year). My guess for next season is Gehrig and Gibson.

Inning Programs - I think we get the following in the last 2 inning programs: Mays, Honus, Griffey, Foxx, Gossage, Bench

I think Pujols is going to be a easy moment giveaway when he ties/passes Mays (assuming he does).

I think Chipper will be the final event reward card.

That leaves high 90s of Eddie Murray, Cy Young, Mathewson, Dale Murphy, Edmonds, Miller, Irvin, Nen, Vida, Vizquel, Brooks, Andruw Jones, Lee Smith, and several others for Henchmen, events, pennant race, etc.

SDS

Robin Roberts was the best pitcher in baseball from 1950-1955. He absolutely needs a 99 overall

SDS

Griffey,Bench, and Gossage will not be inning bosses

I don’t think they are going to hold to the no repeat bosses thing for the 9th and 10th inning. Not enough true end game cards left to fill those spots (and also, while Gossage had an inning boss card last year, his 99 was from the moments extreme 2 thing).

SDS

I know verlander was an inning boss last year but he’s gotta get a 99 cy young/mvp card at some point. I would also think that scherzer would be a lock for a 99 cy young

Mays, Honus, Foxx, Scherzer, Jansen, Adley/Franco, Finest cards, Betts/Yelich MVP cards, Eck Cy Young. These last two aren’t necessarily end game but are still possible: Kimbrel and Brooks Robinson

SDS

I bet we get one more set each of BR and RS cards given the trends of past years ( again, this information shared by our buddy SaveFerris). But will be interesting to see how it all shakes out.

Show storian not SaveFerris!

What about a jake arrieta and a lee smith card

SDS

There are a bunch of 99s that still need to come out.

There’s the finest players which I assume will have several 99s

Then there’s probably 6-10 more future stars that will be 98-99s like Gore, Pearson, Franco, Witt, Ruthscman, Lux and Kelenic.

And then there are a bunch of old timers still left like Mays, Gehrig, Foxx, Gibson, Cy Young, Bench and Wagner

And then several newer legends like Pujols, Chipper, Gossage, Eckersley, Ripken and Griffey.

SDS

I was actually thinking about this yesterday. I, like many of you, fully expected finest to be TA4 at the end of the year. Now, I’m not as convinced. Just looking at the sheer number of missing high end legends, I’m thinking TA4 could be like TA3, with legends taking the final spots and Finest being a stand-alone program in its own right.

SDS

SDS better hurry up. People are moving on to 2K, Madden, Avengers, etc.

SDS

I agree with mostly all of this, except I think that Griffey will be a stand-alone program. I also think Pujols is going to be a WS reward or BR reward.

We may see one more BR reward

SDS

I’m looking forward to 99 Wander Franco over everything else now.

I agree but I think finest might be a card along the way to the final legend card, similar to what the prospect cards were in TA1.

SDS

I think TA 4 is going to be a mix of awards, prime and signature cards. That’s the smoothest route to gets all the legends in. I think finest will be a separate pack deal with collection reward like last year. I also think that with the new influx of awards, prime, signature, finest, and 2020 playoff cards there will be another Honus/Trout style collection that incentivizes locking those cards in. I’m guessing Griffey or Mays

I’ve been wondering this as well. I keep thinking the amounts of cards people had to lock in for trout were so low compared to the number out there now (for example you only had to lock in 15 awards cards and there are now 50+ of them) that they have to have another way in mind to force people to get them and lock them in. It makes sense to me it could be for another top player but I can’t imagine they’d do a second outfielder. Maybe Foxx since everyone seems to want him the most?

I’d expect a multi stage program like Ruth with multiple rewards and so on.
