Live Series DeGrom

SDS

Hey everyone,

First post, and first year of playing DD. I'm a baseball coach and one of my assistants finally talked me into playing DD over the 4th of July. My internet at home is absolutely horrendous so I don't play Ranked Season or anything online (mostly because it's virtually impossible with my internet where I live. Anyways, I am one card away from completing the LS collection, all I need is DeGrom. What is the best way I can go about getting him without having to spend $100 to get 150K worth of stubs? My stub count currently is around 60K because I've had to spend my stubs to obtain the cards for LS and Trout collections (I'm close on Trout as well.) Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

SDS

Flip some of those Run It Back cards imo. Can make a few thousand stubs per flip. I haven't looked at the new post season cards but those are probably buyong and selling quick as well with some room for profit

SDS

Have you tried "flipping" cards? With 60k in stubs, you could get to 150k in stubs without too much trouble. Also - many of the "moments" give bonus stubs upon completion of a "set" - i.e. Team Affinity.

SDS

Also if you're good at showdown the run it back guys still go for 20k. Win 5 of those showdowns and Mantle is yours

SDS

I appreciate the replies! I'm in the middle of two showdowns right now. I've mostly accumulated a lot of my guys playing Conquest and Moments. I've done the RIB, and that was my plan before asking this question. Honest question (because I sincerely don't know) I'm not familiar with "flipping" cards and how any of that works. If these boards are anything like any other message boards I read for sports, then I would imagine that giving strategy like that is frowned upon on these boards, so instead of asking for help with that, is there a thread or a youtube video or anything that anyone recommends to learn?

Oh no! We all share strategies out here. "Flipping" is a core strategy of the NMS crowd (no money spent). I buy the game, but I don't ever buy stubs. Think about "flipping" like the stock market... buy low, sell high.

Here's a quick video about how to make stubs without flipping:

Thank you! I appreciate this, A LOT! I can't say I'm entirely in the NMS crowd, I did buy 300,000 stubs when it was the 50% off sale in I think it was late spring because of RTTS (and honestly, 300K stubs for the price of 150K justified the $100 in my mind haha). But, I hated Madden last year so this is the only game I play now (at least until they bring back NCAA FB) so I kind of looked at that $100 as being my annual Madden purchase. Point being though, I was okay with spending $200 on this counting game cost and the extra stubs, but I don't want to have more than $200 in it (hopefully I make sense).

Thanks again for the link, I appreciate it!

Idk why i didn't think of this first. But if you go do the post season moments and sell the 8 players you get you can afford degrom

TRUE! I didn't think about that!

Those cards are going to be used in a collection for some postseason reward after the World Series in my opinion. They may not, but I would still hold on to them just in case.

Check out Ancel Armstrong on YouTube, to me he gives some of thr best market/flipping tips. Also the best way to get stubs quick would probably just be playing a lot of the RIB showdown/conquest as others said and just selling those cards. About 5 of those and you should be able to afford deGrom. Good luck dude!

SDS

I'm waiting to flip cards from RIB once I get them all. I need the prime ones for Trout.

SDS

Also, you get stubs back from doing the collections in themselves for Live series. You could try the Potm collections/moments or postseason to get your stubs up

SDS

Thanks everyone, I appreciate the feedback! I grinded the RIB conquest 6 times yesterday. Unless he sky rockets on the market today, I should be able to grab him by lunchtime.

And shoutout to the poster about Ance, appreciate that tip!

SDS

Just want to sincerely thank you guys for the feedback. This flipping cards thing you guys helped turn me onto is a game changer and I was able to scarf up DeGrom! Sheffield and Mantle are in the bank, and now it's onto finish the Trout collection! Thank you guys again!

Congrats! Sadly the flipping market has died down. There aren't any super active cards. 😞 You can flip Mo for 100K though! If you wait....

Well, now that I've gotten hooked on Diamond Dynasty, I'll start playing it ASAP when I get TS21. I never played DD until July 4th, as I've always played RTTS. And I would sell every single card to collect stubs for the equipment. Won't be making that mistake anymore!

I didn't do much DD last year. To start off this year, I sold every card I got in a pack unless it was a gold or diamond.
I won't be doing that next year!

I'd never done it mostly because I was a RTTS person, and I'm not a fantasy sports player (which is what I always thought of Diamond Dynasty as being without ever trying it. I always thought you like fantasy drafted a team and played like a franchise type season that way. One of my assistant coaches FINALLY talked me into trying it, and well, thank goodness I did. I enjoy RTTS, and I'll play it next year. But I won't waste stubs on gear for RTTS.
