Market after Friday card release!!

SDS

I’m a noob and would like some feed back from some experienced guys on here please. I finally saved up some stubs and am happy with my team but looking to add a few pieces. Should I wait until Friday release to buy up some cards? Seems like the wise move to make. I know I’m being impatient just want to hear some thoughts. Thanks peeps

SDS

I’m not sure what the content will be on Friday, but, if it’s choice packs to purchase, the market should take a significant dip on the middle diamonds. If it’s a program with free packs some things will take a dip depending on what the free packs are.

Card usually tank temporarily at the time of a content release and slowly increase over the course of weekend , so yes

SDS

Yea I’m thinking there has to be at least a small dip. I’m going to repeatedly tell myself to wait until Friday and not be weak lol

SDS

absolutely wait until friday. i've had my eye on ted williams for my red sox all-time team, but i'm also really interested in the end reward for run it back (please be griffey or mays). either way, stubs will be flowing like wine tomorrow afternoon.

I don’t see it. The end reward for run it back Conquest/showdown appears to be the choice pack containing the cards we’ve seen revealed. You might see a few drop offs here and there, but all this pack will do is further incentivise anyone who hasn’t already done so to complete the Trout program. This will, in turn, drive up a lot of prices, as players lock in cards and less become available on the marketplace. I don’t see a huge general market crash now until Finest or TA4 drop.

If no packs go for sale in the pack shop, I don’t see it dropping prices. If anything, prices may increase as people “run it back” a hundred times and just quicksell the cards, increasing the amount of stubs in circulation

You’re assuming people would want to do such a thing. If that is truly the case, those same people would have been running infinite 8th inning showdowns and getting the BIAH packs and headliners. It’s a time sink for 5k stubs that you could make just flipping a couple of cards in minutes.

SDS

[censored] now im more confused lol. No just kidding I know there is no crystal ball. This is my first year with DD and was burned once already by me guessing wrong on the market. About 4 cards i want to splurge on

SDS

The WS and BR rewards likely won’t drop if those are what you are after.

Chris Sale and Ted were two of them. The others were Scherzer and Maddux. Maybe Kershaw or Mathewson

It’s a lot easier to beat a conquest map with 6 teams for most people than a showdown.

Flipping cards, even though you make stubs, has an overall effect of removing stubs from the market since every transaction takes 10%. The only thing that really makes card prices go up overall is when stubs are added to circulation, causing inflation. This happens when people buy stubs, stubs are an in game reward, or people are quick selling cards that they got as a game reward (same as a stub reward).

And yes, I think the community will spam the showdown and conquest and most of the cards will be at quicksell value within a day.

Scherzer was a headliner.

Sale and Ted are roughly where they’re staying at for now, I’d say 325-350k is about right and with Sale and Rickey presumably leaving the choice pack after this season, I’d say Sale may even rise a touch further once he’s no longer available. Ted Williams isn’t worth the 350k in my personal opinion, as a bad defensive LH OF in a game full of LH power bats, he makes little appeal to me. His price is firmly pinned in that region by not only his popularity, but the popularity of Piazza, Rickey and Sale, however, and I doubt we see him available much below 300k any time soon, if ever.

Maddux is obviously a previous inning boss and after being slated as trash due to his lack of velocity, he was really unpopular for a period of time, which was when I picked him up for my all 90s squad for around 65k. He’s gradually risen like most cards since then and more than a few people have probably locked him into the prestige program, reducing availability. I do use him, but I don’t feel he’s worth his current price tag which was approaching 100k last I looked. I’d probably be hoping to pay 70-75k during a market slump, which we are not currently experiencing.

Scherzer is a different beast entirely. Yes he’s good, but like so many other previous headliners (Dibble being another “prime” - haha! - example), wildly overpriced. The main reason for this is that not only can he still be pulled in standard packs, SDS invariably hand out bundles of headliners every time there’s a conquest map, event or similar and usually end up putting them in the pack store too. Ultimately, this will result in vast numbers of all previous headliners flooding the market and crashing their value, whenever SDS sees fit to do so. I’d definitely wait on Scherzer.

Mathewson will always be a somewhat niche card and will probably end up being rare. (Read: expensive) Not many will have endured the event and he’s not a popular player or an effective card to use in game.
I think most players will be at or around 300 stars in this inning by now, if you want Kershaw then you should probably bite the bullet and just pay the 115-125k it will cost to obtain him. With Cobb being extremely popular and well received due to his speed and hitting, plus Pudge being popular at a shallow position, the price of the other two bosses is going to hold his value steady, as well as Kershaw being a popular pick in his own right.

He was the headliner for headliner pack 50. The discussion looked like it was related to BR and WS reward cards. I was just noting Scherzer wasn’t one of those he was a headliner reward.

Maddux will probably drop a little if there is a big content release like finest or september POTM. I got J-Roll and Stan for about 40-50k each when that dropped. Mathewson wont cause he is an event Ted and Sale wont cause they are world series and Sale will actually increase as he has been out longer and may not be available anymore.
