I use https://the-show-zone.com/flipping/
Do you understand the basics? If so, I won't go into them. 🙂

First off, I try to flip most when a TA stage is coming, or a big event dropped. When the Run It Back came out, I was flipping 97 Javy for 4K a piece. I then just hope for big margins. The more stubs you have, the more chances for big profit you have.
And then just check over at theshowzone randomly, and if you see a big gap, GO GO GO! lol
There are a lot of good YouTube videos about flipping also.

I have around 140k rn, so I should be looking for players with a big difference between buy and sell now?

Use the show zone. It will have the profit net to each one.

Flipping is completely unneeded. More then enough ways to earn cards and stubs this year. I'm NMS, got Mantle/Trout, basically every end game card you could want along with every single inning boss and over a million stubs currently just by playing the game and selling duplicates and anything that is already locked in.

Maybe if folk spent half as much time playing the game as they do in the market we'd have more effort put into playable things to do in game and less packs...

Here's where I completely disagree. It is part of the game, just like the stock market in GTA. Some people get enjoyment and satisfaction out of flipping and investing.

Sometimes I enjoy sitting down and flipping, and that's ok, we all "play" the game in our own way.

Silliest thing I have read in these forums. Yikes.

Agreed. I get tons of enjoyment from being able to use every card in the game from flipping.

I'd say that everyone has their own strategies when it comes to flipping and a lot of people like to keep their strategies to themselves. If you're just starting out and don't have a ton of stubs I would suggest flipping cards that are very low risk. There are a lot of cards out there that you can make anywhere from 500 to 1k stubs per flip. Buying a card for 1,300 stubs and selling for 2,500 stubs. After taxes you would make 950 stubs. While that might not seem like a lot, if you have the time throughout the day and can do that even just 10 times you just made nearly 10k in stubs. A lot of the cheaper cards like that also buy and sell faster than some of the more expensive ones from my experience. If you're starting with a lot of stubs then you can maybe go after some higher priced cards with more of a margin in between buy now and sell now. There could be more risk with certain cards though and the less expensive cards like I mentioned earlier are very low risk. It took me a while to figure out what works best for me and I'm by no means one of these guys that makes 200k a day or anything like that. I go after low risk cards for the most part and just try and update my orders as much as I can throughout the day. Some days I have more time than others but on a good day I can make 50k and up. If you need some help you can feel free to pm me and I can try and help as much as possible.

Flipping isn’t time rewarding atm. Earliest in game cycle , yes. First 5 months of the game , you could flip almost anything every day. Now, only after flash sales is it worth the time.

Stub making versus time , I would suggest Showdowns. The xp, the rewards and stuff is soooooo much more than you can make flipping. ( minus the big ticket items )

I haven’t made any flipping videos in a few weeks because of this . Didn’t realize till late in game cycle how many people could use tips on making stubs. Next year I’ll start when game drops.

With your 140k just focus on flipping golds and maybe low diamonds, aiming for a few hundred in profit from each card. That plus playing will steadily increase your stub roll.
