What are your favorite cards that you can buy in the market, that aren’t legend FOTF? Looking for some fun cards to try. Just bought Cobb. Have every card you can earn that is unsellable (minus Gehrig, who I’m still working toward). Looking to change it up as I go through the conquest grind as I’m more than half through and kind of bored with the grind.
Have all the Topps Now and all the FOTF. Have Musial, Hornsby, Cobb, Walker, Maddux, Kershaw, Gagne, Aroldis sig, Mo, Jake McGee.
Pudge is fun because of his defense, throws people out easily and I can throw in the dirt as much as I want, though I guess that doesn't matter to much in conquest.
That 98 Buxton is pretty sweet, 99 fielding, 99 speed with good pop.
Boggs, Lofton, Carew, Trea Turner, Nolan Ryan are all fun to use...
I've picked up so many cards recently off the market (this has been the best week i've had all year) . My short list of favorites are
Frank Thomas Prime
Jo Adell Future Star
Joey Bart Future star
Andruw Jones Awards
Ty Cobb Prime
Billy Williams Signiture
Javier Baez Awards
Luis Robert Future stars
And i found my new catcher in Jorge Alfaro Tops now.
Royce Lewis and Duke Snider, just picked up Buxton and went 2-2 w/ 2 bombs in conquest game vs all star, thinking this card will be fun too
The Jorge Alfaro Topps Now card is a sneaky good catcher...has everything you want at the position...balanced hitting stats, great swing, gold defense (99 arm more importantly), and 76 speed to boot.
So do we think that the desirable cards (mainly inning boss and World Series rewards) will keep going up. I’ve paid attention to a few lately (like Cobb) and they just keep climbing. I assume it’s because a lot of people are stub rich and also the Run It Back has made it easy to get stubs from playing.
So, does everyone think they keep climbing? What would have to happen for top-end cards to decline in price? We might also be getting close to the time where fewer people are playing, so things don’t move as quickly or as often on the market.
Anyone with thoughts on market?
