Golds are forever

SDS

I swear in years past the ballin packs had a higher rate of diamond lulls than they do now. With the second tier collection in trout program, I’ve gotten 6 extra tiers done equating to 30 ballin packs. Out of that lot I got Corey Seager + Scherzer (who I was excited for until I saw his value plummeted from the past few weeks).

Seeing gold after gold made me go and count all my extra/duplicate golds in inventory....+200!

I’ve got 1.8mm stubs currently so not hurting, but trying to consider what to do now. I typically clean house of all duplicates near the end of the year and just maintain 1 of all cards, but with TA4 still to come, not sure what direction to head?

  1. Sell all duplicates now
  2. Sell all duplicates after roster update (1 still to come, but does this affect just those teams in post season?)
  3. Sit and wait till exchanges

30 packs and 2 diamonds? No way I have that kind of luck. Consider yourself very lucky. I average a diamond pull about every 55 packs. that number was much higher though. I had around a 140 pack drought dating back to last year before In pulled a Charlie Morton earlier this year and snapped it.

2 diamonds out of 30 BIAH? SWEET!

I'm 1 for 57.

SDS

NO!!!! I wanna wallow in misery.....need more diamonds!!!!

SDS

2 diamonds out of 30 packs is on par with the odds.

My personal experience is that I'm pulling diamonds out of BiaH packs at a much higher rate than past years.

SDS

I never pulled a Diamond from a Ballin' is a Gold pack.

That is a terrible stretch man. I think I’ve gotten more diamonds from the TA packs than the ballin.

2 diamonds in 30 packs is actually what it should be. The odds are 1/15.

Also, can someone tell me wtf TA4 is? I've been seeing it all over but haven't gotten an explanation.

This year, I've gotten more Diamonds (Yates, Trout) from the Silver Topper Packs than I've got from BIAG (LeMahieu).

Ah, thanks.

SDS

I’ve done great with BIAH habit this year. More diamonds than I can count. Got Trout just a couple days ago

SDS

wait, you guys are pulling diamonds out of packs? I didn't know that was possible

I remember you posting opening all of those packs. Who did you eventually get, or was the diamond after that opening?
I average around a diamond a week, and I don't open many packs. Looking back, I have had pretty decent luck!

SDS

Only opened 40 of them so far (Twitch & Baez packs), 619(!?!) left to go.

As of now...
2 gold
2 Diamond (JRam, Bellinger)
0 AJ Ramos

Nice. Keep me updated! I love watching pack openings. 🙂

SDS

Golds are the true value of BIAH, I got a zillion Seagers and Darvish that paid off; I say, save it all till TA4 drops...THEN decide to liquidate. You made it this far, wait till Halloween!

SDS

IMO I'll take the 2 golds in a ballin is a habit pack over a quick sell diamond any day, if you get say Fletcher and Stanton that's just about 5k right there.

SDS

I pulled the Awards Scherzer out of one of my 81 Ballin Packs I stocked up on. That was nice. Devin Williams like 3 times, Javy, Lance Lynn, Ozuna, mostly new diamonds. Judge was my biggest LS diamond that wasn't going for more than QS
