How to work the market right now. (First week or 2 of launch)

SDS

So here's what I've been doing,and I haven't spent a dime on the game.

Get your stubs to 75k first by flipping cards or selling off any cards you do have. Whatever you have to do, dont worry about keeping or collecting cards right now, they will all drop in price quite a bit after a couple weeks.

BUY A 50 PACK BUNDLE

After the first 2 weeks, I will say dont buy packs anymore, but right now all the golds, silvers, bronzes, and common's are way over priced.

Open all your packs, then go into your inventory and post all cards for sale on the market you just pulled. This is pretty time consuming, but trust me it's worth it. Each time I've done this so far, I was able to keep a diamond player from the bundle, and make my stubs back to buy another 50 pack bundle by selling off all the other cards.

Here's my results so far.

First 50 pack bundle I pulled aroldis chapman, put him in my bullpen, and posted all the other cards on the market. Remember, always post them, never use sell now.
Not only did I get chapman to keep, I went from 75k to 90k in stubs.

Bought my second bundle. Pulled bellinger and hader. Kept hader, sold off all other cards, including bellinger because hes a card I think is at his highest price for the year now.

So I have done this for about 6 rounds now, and I'm sitting at 120k in stubs, I have a mookie betts posted on the market, and I have been able to keep the following diamonds.
Max Scherzer
Charlie Morton
Josh Hader
Aroldis Chapman
Freddie Freeman
Nolan Arenado
Ketel Marte
Mookie Betts.

Also have kept a few golds for bench bats such as Nelson Cruz, Anthony Rizzo.. etc.

I hope it works for anyone who takes this advice! Best of luck this year guys.

certainly a lot of work to list all of the cards from a 50 pack bundle but also congrats on your pulls. Nice work and thank you for sharing

I’ve ripped 3 bundles and got 0 diamonds. Then I bought a single and pulled Verlander

Whoever advises to buy a 50 bundle in a "Work the Market" thread immediately loses all credibility

This early in the year is not a horrible idea. Since prices are inflated, if you can sell a common for 10x the quicksell, you're making some profit.

Hey man, like I said, its been working for me. Maybe it wont work for everyone, but the way I'm doing it is working. I also said it will only work for 2 weeks or so. As long as you're pulling a few golds per 50 pack bundle,and a good chunk of silvers, then you'll make your stubs back pretty easily. A silver card itself is almost worth 1k stubs right now.

If it works for you, keep doing your thing. I personally think there are way better ways to generate stubs is all I was trying to say.

I don't think it's a good idea tbh. You're spending stubs and hoping you get something in return. Sure, you might. But more often than not you'll lose stubs. Better use those stubs to flip cards and make real profits.

I canceled a buddies golf trip to tpc sawgrass this upcoming week and I’ve been in the house with my family since Friday so out of boredom, having extra $, and sheer stupidity I decided to spend some cash on packs. I spent $150 on stubs and bought 3 50 pack bundles. I had packs from the preorder and packs from just playing the game. I estimate I’ve opened approximately 200 packs. Guess the results............one diamond (javy Baez) LOL
