For those chasing Mantle...

How close are you? I’m 7 teams away. All NL. Need some pack luck. I haven’t had any so far. Hopefully I get something decent soon. Been grinding hard. Biggio is great. Can’t wait for Mantle though.

Anyone have him yet on here?

How do you guys do this so quick. Do you buy stubs just to complete collections or is there another way. I have to be missing something obviously.

GL man. I dont spend anything extra on the game so it will be a while. Last year it only took me until about mid June or late June I believe. Years past it took me all year. I have a feeling with the way they changed the economy of the game this year it might be another all year type deal for me. At least there are tons of other guys to use in the process.

In years past I would work the market. last year I didnt really have to. This year I have a feeling I will again.

They spend lots of money (not that there is anything wrong with that). The OP is one of the biggest whales in the show.

Ive only got 5 teams done, but early on I flip the common/bronze/silver cards until I essentially get them for free. Up to 85k stubs from the original 30 and have packed Yelich and Freeman so far

I'm only 29 teams away.
I'm doing collections in the next week or two after the market settles a little bit and I get a few more stubs.

Anybody got a calculation how many stubs it'll cost?

I always spend money to start the year. I spent the same last year and got Mays. This year is a lot more expensive. I know one person who has Mantle, but I don’t think he’s on this forum.

I will grind the rest. I was at 10 teams away and just knocked out the other three just playing.

I need a good pull though. Help a brother out pack gods!!

Youtubers went nuts man. Almost all the youtubers opened their wallets to get mantle.

I know one big 2k YouTuber that made the move to the Show (shake4andbake). If you guys come across him, he is a really good dude. Welcome him if he shows up here.

The guy I know that did it isn’t even a YouTuber. He was a big 2k guy and bought Mantle day one. We both joked about doing it, I didn’t think he actually would.

Well that makes sense. I won't spend money, that's me, I would rather grind it out and feel a bit more accomplished.
Not that I slam anybody for spending, we all have the option, its the path we choose.

Nothing wrong with that at all!! I’m old though, and with them adding Mantle, it was hard to resist.

I won't have him forever tbh. Not spending money on the game this year, I've gone down that rabbit hole before. What I complete will be from the market, flipping cards and any lucky pulls from free packs.

I get it, I wasn't going to buy this year because last year was my first DD year and I loved it and wanted to try and accomplish everything, but once I saw The Mick, I was all over it. Still trying to learn certain aspects to progress quicker, but it's all fun for the reward.

I certainly hope to eventually get him, but know it will be slow at this point. I had Mays and Honus last year. Just planning to take it slow. Still working on my strategy since we can’t sell collected cards. Won’t spend on this game but don’t mind the people that do. They spend and it helps us too, in a way, in its impact on market. And it puts money in SDS pocket (that isn’t my money) to keep them making a good oroduct

It seems like diamond prices are lower than previous years. With BR/events and stuff, most diamonds are relatively cheap. It’s probably relative though because of the lack of quick selling. I’ve been using the TA cards because they’re really good. I’ve sold off all pack pulls and event winnings and have about 230k (athletics white Sox and royals done so far). Trying to decide if I want to take the plunge on Trout now.

I’m in the same boat, about 250k stubs and trying to decide on Trout (only other LS I have is Mookie). I’ve had no pack luck so far, so may wait a bit.
