99 Mantile Confirmed

SDS

Just on Ramone's draft board.

Not Confirmed (yet anyway) is that it's the LS Collect reward.

SDS

I’m guessing Mick is the collection reward with Sheffield as the NL collection. They have revealed every other possible way to get cards at launch other than the collections so it has to be it

SDS

Doesn't someone have to discover the collection reward cards before they show up in BR drafts? Am I missing something, or does this prove Mantle is not a collection reward, as no one has collected all live series yet?

They're most likely not playing on the same servers that will be going live tonight.

Idk, I'm still sceptical. Why wouldn't they reveal him as the collection reward during the DD stream?

SDS

They want it to be a surprise, probably

Okay so I just watched last year's dev tournament. Not a single high diamond round included collection rewards: Pudge, Hornsby, or Mays. It was only cards that did not have to be discovered such as Frank, Gwynn, Morgan etc. As far as I'm concerned, given that Mantle is an immediately draft-able player in BR, he must not be a collection reward.

How do you think he’ll be obtained then?

Because I’m stumped

Somewhere along the upper echelons of the XP path?

Me too. That's the only part missing from my theory. He's got to be available day one, but not a hidden card that must be discovered such as are the collection rewards. Maybe they removed discovering cards, or removed discovery from collections

That would be nice, but I don’t see them letting us have a card like that for free.

Based on past experiences, I'd agree with you. Maybe they're responding to how upset people were that Babe and Chipper were WS rewards last year. I'd expect even more pitchforks if they put someone like Mantle behind a skill wall.

To be fair, prior to last year, I would have never guessed they'd give us that SS Frank or Kershaw via the XP reward path, either. But they did do that.

They refuse to say how he is obtained on stream, so it could be some new way.

Or they just want it to be a (very predictable) surprise.

That’s true, who knows at this point.

I’m struggling trying to think who would be worth collecting all the LS for, if it isn’t Mantle though. I assume it will be a new legend again, but I don’t think any they’ve shown so far would be worth it, other than Mantle.

Yeah I'd been under the assumption it'd be Mantle, too. But hey, if they want to stash another huge name unleaked legend there too, I'm for it.

So Mantile was confirmed, but what about Mantle's rating?

Only legend I'd ever get legitimately, scream out loud and jump around excited about. I'd lose it.
