Nobody’s talking about this with mantle

This man holds the “record” for fastest home to first time in baseball. Now it may not be 100% accurate but still running a 3.1 second home to first time should mean very very high speed on his cards. He should also have 99 bunting and drag bunting for those Cheesers out there

*As measured by a 5 jewel Elgin that was a year overdue for service and calibration

Did they say how he was obtainable? Is he the collection reward this year? I will be pissed if he is WS or BR reward

They didn’t say how his 99 will be obtained, but I definitely expect him to be the LS collection reward.

Yeah with such a big card and one that so many people want, I would say that his 99 card will be the one for the collection. I hope I can do it again this year, I didn't spend any last year and was able to get all the cards but without quickselling the diamonds now, it'll be a little tougher. I guess more flipping

Someone will have him the first day

If he is the collection, I will flip my little heart out and at least try to have him first week.

Were I a betting man, I'd bet it all on him being the LS Collect reward.

Agreed. I’d bet On Ortiz or Mo being the AL collection and one of the Atlanta pitchers being the NL reward too. Also possible that other unannounced legends would be AL and NL collect missions too

The only version that will have 99 speed will probly be his rookie card. From what I remember he blew his knee out pretty early in his career playing next to Joe D by tripping on a sprinkler head or something like that.

By one metric of speed he was fast. But by others he wasn't quite as so. He peaked at 21 SB

"nobody's talking about this..."

Literally Luis in the Stream:

"He's also very fast. By most accounts, he was actually faster than his counterpart and long-time rival Willie Mays, which is amazing."

The card art is rookie card. Can't wait to see the attributes.
